Cook up your own Raspberry-Thyme Vinegar to use in dressings, served over fruits and veggies and more. Summertime is great for finding fresh raspberries and thyme for this recipe. Turn Raspberry-Thyme Vinegar into a staple in your meal plan.
Cook vinegar and sugar in saucepan until mixture reaches 190°F, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, rinse raspberries, then thyme; place evenly in 3 warm sterilized pint-size jars.
Pour vinegar mixture into jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of rims; cover with lids.
Let stand in cool dark place 3 to 4 days.
Pour vinegar mixture through cheesecloth-lined fine-mesh strainer into sterilized decorative bottles. Discard strained solids. Cover bottles with lids. Let stand at room temperature up to 1 month before using as desired.
Substitute a warm sterilized 32-oz. jar for the 3 smaller jars.
Pour 1/3 cup Thyme-Raspberry Vinegar into clean jar with lid. Add 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard and dash of black pepper; cover with lid. Shake until ingredients are well blended. Refrigerate up to 2 weeks. Shake well, then pour over a mixed green salad or hot grilled fresh vegetables.
For a decorative touch, place additional well-rinsed fresh raspberries and thyme sprigs in strained vinegar mixture in filled bottles before covering with the lids. (Note: The raspberries will begin to break down after a few weeks in the vinegar. Once the raspberries lose their shapes, remove and discard them from the vinegar.)
This versatile fat-free vinegar, flavored with fresh thyme and raspberries, can be a delicious staple in your healthful eating plan.
