Herbal Infused Vinegar
A Recipe + A Note of Gratitude
I’m so thrilled to host my first online workshop of 2023 this weekend!
To celebrate, I wanted to send a quick email to you this week with one of the recipes I’ll be talking about.
It’s one of the easiest ways to use up food scraps and makes a great gift or just a nice staple for your own kitchen.
This class also has me thinking about gratitude, namely my gratitude for all the people who have supported my creative work this past year whether through paying for a newsletter subscription, taking a class, or buying a book. I never take your support for granted!
As part of that reflection, I’ve decided to offer this class + recording for FREE to anyone with a paid newsletter subscription, Patreon, or Root membership. If that’s you, scroll to the end to get your link to join the class!
If you don’t have a paid subscription, but want to take the class, I’m grateful to work with you too! Just send me an email (email@example.com) and we’ll get you signed up.
Thank you again!
Sunday, January 15th, 10:00-11:00 AM EST
$20-$50 sliding scale, email firstname.lastname@example.org to join
Recording will be sent to participants after our class!
Recipe: Herb stem-infused vinegar
This is one of my favorite ways to use stems from woody herbs like rosemary and thyme, that are too tough to chop and add to recipes. Another option? Save them and add them to soups, stocks, and sauces for an extra punch of flavor.
1 pint jar
Apple cider vinegar (or your favorite vinegar, white or red wine vinegar also work great here)
Stems from woody herbs like rosemary and thyme
-Pack your stems in your jar until it’s 1/3-1/2 full. For a stronger flavor, use more!
-Pour your vinegar over the stems to completely cover and fill the jar.
-Cover tightly and let sit at room temperature for at least 2 weeks, or until it has a flavor you enjoy.
-Strain, and store at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
This recipe is a staple in my household in spring when my herb garden really wakes up and goes wild. I hope you enjoy it, too!
P.S. I’ll be teaching classes in Edinburgh, London, and Wicklow next month. Details TBD, but signups for Edinburgh are available now!
