  • About


  • ½ Pint of Tarragon Leaves
  • A Quart of the Best Cider, or White Wine


The best french vinegar is made from the Tarragon leaves. The French gather the leaves and expose them to the heat of the sun for several days. Then they throw them into the best Cider or White Wine and steep for about two weeks. The liquor is then carefully strained, a flannel bag being generally used, and it is afterwards bottled, corked and sealed, and kept in a cool place for exportation.</
