Finding the right container

Choosing the right container to make raspberry vinegar recipe all depends on its purpose. If the purpose often is for display and sometimes functionality, then the fancy clasped bottle is a good choice. For long term storage and general use, a Mason Jar works better, and is cheaper. I like to do some of both, one for display and more for storage.

Kicking it up a notch

Taking the vinegar infusion a step further, adding some aromatics to the infusion. Adding extra components to vinegar brings more depth and pizzazz. The possibilities are infinite, so let’s look into some considerations. First thought is to add some chilies into raspberry vinegar infusion, select a fruity variety. Some of the super hot chilies are wonderful, but be careful how many, they are powerfully hot. The Caroilna Reaper Chilies , is extremely hot but has wonder and slightly sweet flavor profile perfect for the infusion, with other variety of chilies.
