Transforming wine into vinegar is a simple process that can be done by placing the wine in a jar or bottle with cheesecloth covering the top.

Red wine vinegar is a versatile condiment that can elevate the flavor profile of various dishes. This type of vinegar adds a balanced tanginess and a hint of sweetness to any meal.

Blueberry Pomegranate Infused Red Wine Vinegar Recipe

Coordinates with Recipe#381946, Recipe#365773, Recipe#379251, Recipe#383219, and Recipe#379221 and I was unable to buy this vinegar from our small town grocery store so I developed my own with the help of Chef#220195. Allow yourself 3 days before using. Also is good over fresh or grilled stone fruit slices. Might be good in a Korean blueberry shrub cocktail that has Korean soju or Japanese shochu, and a bit of club soda.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice

Instructions
 

  • Put vinegar and sugar into medium sized sauce pan, bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • While vinegar mixture is simmering, wash blueberries, and dry off with paper toweling; put berries between 2 layers of wax paper; gently crush berries until they pop-to get more of the flavor into the vinegar.
  • Use the wax paper to funnel the berries into the quart jar.
  • Remove vinegar mixture from heat, add pomegranate juice to vinegar, put funnel into quart jar, and pour hot vinegar mixture over blueberries.
  • Allow to cool down for 30 minutes.
  • Cover tightly with lid and let stand at room temperature for 3 days.
  • Shake jar occasionally.
  • Place several layers of cheesecloth in a strainer set inside a glass bowl; dump mixture through to strain out the blueberries; discard the blueberries. You might need to repeat this step.
  • While doing the above step, clean a pint jar and lid to put the vinegar into.
  • Using a funnel pour the liquid into the jar, label, cover, and store in refrigerator up to 1 month. (Guessing on storage, but will err on side of caution until someone with the expertise tells me differently).
