|Fresh basil leaves|
|Fresh mint leaves|
|Wine or rice vinegar|
Using one of the herbs listed, wash leaves, dry by patting with a towel and pack in wide mouth glass jar, vinegar bottle or cruet. Use a generous amount for best flavor. Fill with vinegar to cover herbs.
Cap and store at least a week. A blend of herbs may be combined with vinegar to provide interesting flavors.
Vinegars may be used alone on salads or mixed with oil to make up a dressing. Vinegars are also excellent in marinades.
