Blueberry Vinegar

Blueberry Vinegar – yep blueberries at their best. It is our summer.

1 pint blueberries, washed and dried
1 cup white wine vinegar
2 Tbs sugar
1 bay leaf – from Turkey, if possible
1 tsp black peppercorns

Place berries in small pot, mash with a potato masher. Add vinegar, sugar, bay leaf, and peppercorns. Bring to boil, and reduce to simmer. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 3 – 4 hours

Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a clean glass jar and refrigerate.

Then figure out ways to use said vinegar. I have this habit of buying local produce from some farm stand or farmers’ market and then going, hm …. What the hell am I going to do with this?

We have local blueberries all over the place right now, really beautiful, and cheap. I love supporting local growers and have toyed with growing blueberries myself, but my lovely next door neighbor has said, it is an exercise in feeding the birds. Totally get that.
