Herbal Vinegar Gourmet Purple Basil flavored Herb vinegar, basil, purple basil
Every Summer I create a variety of Herbal Vinegars with fresh herbs. This year I have several unique blends. One of my favorites is this Purple Basil crafted with distilled white vinegar. It tastes like Sweet Basil, but is made with Purple-Ruffled and Opal Basil to give it a rich red-violet color almost like burgundy wine. It is packaged in a decorative glass cruet sealed with a cork.
Preserving the fresh flavor of an herb, herbal vinegar is a great flavor addition to dressings and marinades as well as a perfect pick-me-up to sauces and vegetables. Herbal vinegar never spoils, but it does lose its unique herbal character after about 18 months. This vinegar crafted in 2018 will be tasty well into 2020.
Along with the vinegar we will include a recipe and tip sheet as well as several special recipes for use with this particular flavor of vinegar. (See our other herb vinegars, like lemon or savory, in the Herb Vinegar Section - https://www.etsy.com/shop/backyardpatch?section_id=10290390)
The vinegar will be carefully packaged for shipping to avoid breakage and spillage.
Here is a recipe like those included with this purchase:
Herb Salad Dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbls. herb vinegar
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. sugar
dash salt & pepper
Blend ingredients in covered container and allow 4 hours in refrigerator to meld. Can be used as a dip or thinned with 3 Tbls. of milk for salad dressing.
