  • About

I always prepare a copious quantity of spiced vinegar at the beginning of the autumn ready to be used in pickles and preserves whenever the occasion arises.


  • 1.2 litres/2 pints white or red wine vinegar
  • 5 cm/


If you have the time, put all the ingredients into a bottle, seal tightly and leave in a cool, dark place for one to two months, shaking occasionally.

Otherwise, put them all into a large pan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and set aside until cool. Strain and bottle. Can be used immediately.
