Peach Infused Vinegar



Well, peach week is coming to a close here on Your Southern Peach, but rest assured I'll be sharing more peachy goodness as the season continues.  I doubt I can resist.

This peach infused vinegar is a real keeper!  It adds a touch of elegance to a simple salad and makes a great hostess gift too. I found these small bottles at my local craft store and finished them off with some pretty ribbon.

You'll want to be sure to use overripe peaches, which is great if you invest in a crate at your local farmers market.  Kept refrigerated, the vinegar will stay fresh for up to a month.    

Oh and if you're looking for the fastest way to peel peaches, you gotta watch this quick video by Sunset.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!


Ingredients:

4 cups of peaches, peeled, pitted and roughly chopped (about 6-7 peaches)
3 cups of white distilled vinegar
1/2 cup honey

Instructions:


  1. Bring peaches, vinegar, and honey to a simmer in a large saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Cover, and let cool completely.
  2. Puree peach mixture in a blender until smooth, about 10 seconds. Strain through a fine sieve into a large nonreactive bowl. Line sieve with cheesecloth, and place over another large nonreactive bowl. Pour strained peach mixture into sieve. (Do not press solids in sieve.) Cover with plastic wrap, and let mixture strain in refrigerator overnight (or up to 2 days).
  3. Uncover, and remove sieve from bowl. Discard solids. Pour peach vinegar into a resealable nonreactive bottle or jar. (Vinegar can be refrigerated for up to 1 month.)
