What do you use chive vinegar for?
How to make Chive Blossom Vinegar
Chive blossom vinegar is made by infusing the chive blossoms in room-temperature vinegar for two weeks. No refrigeration is required. This simple process yields an onion-flavored, high-quality product. It is a beautiful color and makes a lovey gift from your kitchen and garden, making it well worth the two-week infusing time.
For best results, pick chive blossoms when they are fully opened but have not yet started to fade and go to seed.

Gather the blooms and wash gently; allow to dry or place in a salad spinner.
Loosely pack the blossoms into a clean jar.
Cover blossoms with a neutral tasting vinegar such as champagne or white wine, but even distilled vinegar works well.

This post came at the right time – I have garlic chives with loads of blossoms right now. My husband loves to use flavored vinegars, so we’re going to try this one!
Such a beautiful presentation! And would make a lovely gift. I love the color. I should ask the Gardener to grow chives!

I used to have something that looked like that growing on the side of my house. I never knew what it was and now I wonder if it was chives.
I plan to start a herb garden soon. I used to have chives in my previous herb garden and loved using them. Now I’m planning my ‘new’ herb garden. I’m recovering from surgery and my ‘diet’ needs to restrict sodium a bit so I’m exploring and gathering information on how to use herbs. You have some great resources for me, dear friend. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I plan to use it next Spring when my chives will bloom.
