Directions

  1. Place the strawberries, cider vinegar and honey in food processor. Pulse for a short time until strawberries are in small pieces but not pureed (a potato masher can also be used for this step). Taste mixture and increase honey if a sweeter taste is preferred.

  2. Let mixture stand at room temperature 1 hr., then filter using a strainer lined with two layers of cheesecloth. Discard strawberries and transfer the liquid to a jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to a month; shake before each use.

Tip

Prepare vinaigrette by mixing 1 part strawberry vinegar with 1 part olive oil, plus salt and pepper to taste. Serve over green or beet salads. Or use the vinegar to deglaze skillets used to cook chicken, pork or duck -- and serve glaze over the meats.
