Introduction: Raspberry Vinegar

This is my first Instructable and English is not my native language.
So please bear with me and my poor spelling :-)

I will show how to make your own Raspberry Vinegar to spice up your salad, marinate, desserts/afters etc.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 300 gr frozen (or fresh) Raspberry
  • 165 gr white Sugar
  • 365 ml of vinegar (I use Cider Vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon of dried yeast

Step 2: Mix Sugar and Vinegar

  • Pour the vinegar in a saucepan on the stove
  • Heat it up and dissolve the sugar in the liquid, while stirring with a spoon
  • Do not boil it - just heat until the sugar vanish

Step 3: Mix Vinegar & Raspberry and And Yeast

  • Mix the hot vinegar in a bowl with the thaw out raspberries
  • Add 1 tablespoon of dried yeast and stir well

Step 4: Fermentation

  • Cover the bowl with some kitchen roll
  • Lay a lid on (leave a gap, so air from the fermentation can escape)
  • Let the mix stand at roomtemperature for two days

Step 5: Sieve the Mix

  • Sieve the mix in a strainer
  • Stir well until the juice has left the the mix
  • Prepare some boiling water in a kettle
  • Pour the mashed raspberries in a small cup/bowl
  • Cover the mash with boiling water and let it cool down
  • Sieve out the water and mix it with the vinegar

Now the vinegar is ready for bottlening

Step 6: Bottlening

  • Get some bottles with screw- or flip top
  • Clean the bottles well
  • It is easier to fill the bottles if you pour from a jug

Step 7: Labels

  • Use your favourite editor to make the label
  • Print it on ordinarily paper
  • Spray the print with some waterproofing preparation (Same thing as you would use for your shoes.) This make your labels more resistant for greasy fingers in the kitchen
  • Cut the labels with a scissor. I use one thats make a pattern when you clip. (Found in my daughters playroom :-)
  • Glue the label to the bottle Instead of a glue stick you can use milk or wallpaper paste

Note: "Hindb�r Eddike" is the danish word for Raspberry Vinegar

Step 8: Finish!

The product is now finish and ready to use in your kitchen or as a hostess gift.

Instead of Raspberry try the same method with:
  • Blackberry
  • Blueberry
