Blueberry-basil vinegar

Yield: 48 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 cups Fresh blueberries; crushed
½ cup Firmly packed torn fresh basil leaves
4 cups White vinegar
\N \N Fresh basil leaves; (optional)

Combine crushed fresh blueberries and ½ cup torn basil in a large, sterilized wide-mouthed jar, and set aside.

Place vinegar in a medium nonaluminum saucepan, and bring to a boil. Pour hot vinegar over blueberry mixture; cover jar, and let stand at room temperature for 2 weeks. Yield: 4 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon).

NOTES : This is a great start for most any salad dressing and makes a perfect hostess gift. Strain vinegar through several layers of cheesecloth into decorative jars; discard blueberry pulp. Add additional basil leaves to jars, if desired. Seal jars with a cork or other airtight lid.
