(Yields 2 cups)
- 3 cups red wine vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. garlic sliced
- small handful of herb stems* and dry herbs
- 1 bay leaf
- ½ tsp. pepper mix **
Add all together and bring to a boil. Turn to a simmer and reduce vinegar to 2 cups. Turn off heat, cool and strain.
* Use herb stems that have complimentary flavors to one another.
* *I make my pepper mix with black, white, Szechwan, and pink peppercorns mixed with allspice berries. There are many commercial mixes available.
