Add a few flowers to the bottle after straining. It will look pretty and remind you of the vinegar’s flavor.

  • ½ cup nasturtium flowers
  • ½ cup garlic chive flowers
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  1. Combine the nasturtium flowers, garlic chive flowers, and vinegar in a steeping container. Attach a lid. Set the container in a cool, dark place, shaking every couple of days.
  2. Taste after a week, then filter (or let it steep longer until the flavor is to your liking). Pour into bottles, cap tightly, seal if desired, and label.
