Violet Vinegar

A vibrantly coloured floral vinegar- a must have for any larder! Add a gourmet twist to a simple green salad, or give a colourful kick to your favourite recipes.
Prep Time 5 mins


  • 1 Sterilized Jar


  • 1/2 Cup Violet Flowers
  • 1 Cup Good Quality White Wine Vinegar


  • Gently rinse your flowers, and leave to dry.
  • Once dry, add them to your jar and pour over the white wine vinegar.
  • Cover the lid of your jar with a small square of parchment paper (to prevent a reaction between the vinegar and metal) and screw the lid on tightly.
  • Place the jar in a cool, dark place for 1-2 weeks, until colour has reached desired depth.
  • Strain out the flowers and re-jar the vinegar in a sterilized jar or bottle.


We recommend using a high quality white wine vinegar- cheap white wine vinegars have an overly acidic harsh flavour which with mask the subtle floral taste.
Avoid cider vinegars- they will alter the vibrant purple colour and overwhelm the balance of flavours.
