Sweet Raspberry or Blackberry Vinegar


1-1/2 pounds raspberries or blackberries (3 pints)
1/2 cup sugar
1 quart European-style red wine vinegar (7% acidity)


Combine berries with sugar and place in jars. Fill with vinegar, apply lids, and process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water bath. Let sealed jars cool, then refrigerate for 3 weeks; then strain and bottle. Use on fruit, in salads, in marinades, and as a sauce component, especially for chicken and duck livers. It’s also nice, with sugar, as a light dressing for fresh strawberries.


Makes about 1-1/2 quarts.
