Holiday Crafting ~ Cranberry & Sage Vinegar

It’s kind of exciting this time of year when you begin to really feel that the holidays are just around the corner. I hate the spending of money, but I love the gift giving — and I especially love giving hand made ‘delights’ that are tailored to someone’s specific tastes!

One of the first herbal concoctions I ever made was an herbal vinegar, and I thought this one would be especially nice to share for the holiday season.  The use of cranberries in this vinegar turn the color a wonderful crimson red and sage adds a “seasonal taste”. Great for use with fruit salad, chicken salad, greens (cooked or raw), etc.

As shared by Rita Richardson in The Herb Quarterly (www.herbquarterly.com):

Cranberry & Sage Vinegar
1 cup fresh cranberries
7-8 fresh sage leaves (or dried whole leaves)
1-2 bottles rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar

In a clear glass bottle place 1 cup fresh cranberries, and a few fresh sage leaves. Cover wtih warm rice wine vinegar. Tie a thin ribbon around the bottle for flair.
