Featured Recipe: Chive Blossom Vinegar
Chive blossoms are a short-term crop that come and go in the spring before you can bat an eyelash. Capturing their mild chive flavor in a good-quality vinegar is the perfect way to enjoy them well past their season.
Makes 1 cup
- 1 cup chive blossoms
- 1 cup white wine or white Vinegar
- Harvest the chive blossoms in the spring just after they open. To prepare the chive blossoms, snip off the stems and gently jostle them in a bowl of cool water to remove all dirt and debris. Pile the wet blossoms into the center of a clean, dry kitchen towel, pull up all of the corners to create a sack, and shake vigorously until the blossoms are dry.
- Stuff a clean pint-sized Mason jar with the clean blossoms.
- In a small saucepan, gently warm the vinegar over medium-low heat. Do not bring to a boil. Pour the vinegar over the blossoms, making sure to submerge them completely.
- Once the liquid has cooled, cover the jar with a lid made of nonreactive material such as glass. Alternatively, protect a metal canning lid by first placing a square of waxed paper between the jar and the lid.
- Store in a cool, dark cupboard for a week or two and strain into a second, clean or sterilized jar when the vinegar suits your taste buds.
Frankly, all herbal vinegars are delicious--experiment with several edible flowers, leaves, and seeds and keep a medley of flavors on hand.

This book would make an outstanding gift to anyone, whether they garden or not. It's inspiring for all levels and would appeal in particular to readers under 30, because the author has a youthful style and appeal herself. That's not to say it won't appeal to older readers--it certainly does--but gardening books with a youthful spin are hard to find when you're looking for a gift. For even more detail and for expert advice on herbs and edible flowers, check out Lois Hole's "Herbs and Edible Flowers" too. It's also a great book.
