Tips

How to choose the best vinegar for herb infusion?
You can use any vinegar to infuse thyme. However, you should consider that all vinegar is not similar, and hence they have different acidity levels. The original flavor of the vinegar you choose has a profound effect on the taste of your finished product.
It is to note that balsamic vinegar goes best with herbs such as thyme, rosemary, tarragon, or basil. Apple cider vinegar makes a great combination with plenty of herbs, citrus peels, fennel seeds, and especially spices. Rice wine vinegar can be infused with plums for a nice color and aroma.
You can also have the option of combining two kinds of vinegar in a single infusion. For example, in one cup rice vinegar and one cup white wine vinegar, you can infuse parsley, rosemary, and thyme. It will yield a rich flavored vinegar that you can use to brighten up several recipes.
Does infused vinegar go bad?
If you follow proper handling and bottling protocols, a flavored vinegar should remain good for at least three months. After this period, any fruit-infused vinegar may manifest considerable changes in its flavor and color. However, refrigeration prolongs the shelf life of infused vinegar up to six to eight months. Care should be taken to keep the infused vinegar bottles tightly sealed.
How long does herb-infused vinegar last?
When storing herb infused vinegar, it is necessary to discard the herbs. The bottle you are using to preserve the infused vinegar must be sterilized before use. It is necessary to keep the vinegar in a cool, dry place all the time. In this way, you can make your herb-infused vinegar last for up to six months.
Does vinegar go bad after opening?
A vinegar is spicy and acidic, and the pH of vinegar does not encourage the growth of microorganisms. This is the basic reason that keeps the vinegar safe for use even if its expiration date has passed. Even if you notice the sediments at the bottom of a vinegar bottle, it will remain completely fine for consumption.
How do you infuse vinegar with the heating method?
Take a clean, heat-proof glass jar and add some dried herbs. In a thick-based herb-infused saucepan, heat vinegar till it comes to simmer. Do not boil the vinegar. Now pour this hot vinegar over the dried herbs. Seal the lid and label the jar with vinegar, the name of the herbs, and the date of preparation.
