1 1/2 cups small ripe fresh strawberries, hulled
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups white wine vinegar
In a medium size jar, place berries and vinegar.
Seal jar and let stand in a sunny window for 3 to 4 days or
until vinegar takes on a bright red color. The berries will
soften and lose their color. Strain vinegar mixture into a 1
quart stainless-steel or enamel sauce pan and discard the berries.
Stir sugar into vinegar and heat to boiling. Simmer over low
heat 10 minutes. Cool vinegar and pour into 1-pint bottle. Seal
and store in a cool, dry place or in the refrigerator. Tart
yet slightly sweet, this berry vinegar transforms plain fruit
sauces and glazes into something special to complement roast
duck, pork, or ham. It's delicious with chicken and fruit salads.
