    Default Home-made raspberry vinagrette

    Dressing

    4 cups white wine vinegar
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 cups of ripe fresh raspberries (or any fruit)

    In medium saucepan, combine vinegar and sugar; bring almost to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves (DO NOT LET BOIL). Place the raspberries - 1 cup each - in 2 x 1 quart bottles. Next, pour the hot vinegar over it. Seal the bottles and shake slightly.

    Let stand at room temperature for 48 hours.

    Strain through several layers of cheese cloth into a clean jar.

    Seal tightly and store for 2 to 3 weeks in cool dark place; do not refrigerate. Then pour into pretty decanters or glass bottles.

    Great on fruit salads, green salads and to give as a gift.

    To make herb dressing, replace the raspberries with your favorite fresh herbs and omit the sugar, following the same directions.

    Thanks PB. I think I'll use blueberries since my blackberries had to be thrown away

    Sounds very yummy I'd want to make extra to give away to friends and family in pretty glass bottles.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Yes, it's great to make things and give them as gifts. I've done that with cordial, vinegar, preserves, cookies, candy -- I find people tend to appreciate the home-made stuff because not that many people do it. And if you're short on cash it's a nice alternative to buying expensive gifts that most people don't need or want anyway.

    I've completed thus far and will now need to wait 2-3 weeks.
    I'm thinking it might be delish if I made Hawaiian themed salad...like with ham or teriyaki chiken.

    It would probably be good with fish, too.
