Red wine salt

I bought a while ago some red wine salt and i liked it, but it was too expensive for buying it again, so I decided to make my own red wine salt. So I bought some coarse sea salt and used it to make my red salt. I had some home made red wine, so no expense here.

I put the wine in a pot and let it boil until it remains only a big spoon of dark red syrupy liquid.vin1vin2vin3Then I put that liquid over the salt (250 grams) and mixed it well until all was absorbed by the salt. Then I placed the salt on a tray to let it cool and dry.

Onion chive vinegar

Using flowers to flavored vinegar is not a new practice. This time I used onion chive flowers to add to my vinegar.


Is so simple. Just pick some flowers, if not enough to fill a bottle, don’t worry, you can add some more later.


Add white wine vinegar to cover the flowers.


Close the bottle, shake it, and place it in a dark place.

Add more flowers as they become available until you fill the bottle. Use it to flavored you salads. Enjoy! 🙂

L.E. This is how it looks 10 days after, nice and pink 🙂
