which looked very nice and, as we have lots of nasturtiums growing, I thought I would make up a bottle and see how it tasted.
This tasty vinegar is very easy to make. Firstly I washed 2 cups of nasturtium leaves and a 1/2 cup or so of flowers and sun dried them for a couple of days although the recipe in the link just says to wash and dry them.
I then put the dried flowers and leaves in a large Moccona coffee jar which had been cleaned well followed by 2 tablespoons of black peppercorns and a couple of rosemary stems.
Then I covered this with 4 cups of white vinegar. Use a good quality one for this. Then it was stirred and put into a dark cupboard.
After a week or so I had a taste and thought I would leave it for a couple more weeks to develop a more peppery flavour.
At the end of next week it will be strained through a fine sieve, stored in a sterilised bottle and placed in a cool place until used.
This would make a lovely Christmas gift with a photo of a nasturtium and the date on which it was made on a pretty label.
