One way to preserve the bounty of summer is in the form of gourmet vinegars. Nasturtium vinegar is one of our favourites.


  • One small bowl nasturtium flowers

  • One bottle white wine vinegar


  1. Gather fresh, vibrant nasturtium flowers and rinse well, removing any insects.

  2. Place nasturtiums in clean quart jar and add the wine vinegar. Keep the vinegar bottle for later use.

  3. Let the nasturtiums sit in the vinegar for a few days until it becomes bright red.

  4. Strain well and pour back into the vinegar bottle.
