Rose infused vinegar

8 Jul

You probably saw that I’m currently on holiday on instagram. I’m having the time of my life so far: eating well, exploring nature and learning new things (I’m currently into wild herbs and flowers and what you can do with them). This brings me to today’s post. I never forget you – even if I’m on holiday. Don’t worry. How could I?! I love to take you along! But before I show you pictures of where I’ve been and what I’ve done, I love to share a very easy recipe for rose infused vinegar with you.

All you need is:
– 2 handfuls of rose pedals
– 1 litre white wine vinegar

Put the rose pedals in bottles and top it off with vinegar.

Let it infuse for 2 weeks somewhere bright and shiny and sieve it into sealable bottles.

The rose pedals come from my moms garden and some of the tiny flowers looked like hearts. Aren’t they the cutest?

I already made a salad with this vineagar and it’s really good. The rose flavor is not overpowering but gives a nice depth and slight sophisticated flavor to the salad.

Now after the strawberry vinegar this is my second endeavor in making vinegar and I love it! It’s so easy and quick and makes every salad (and in the hot months I eat lots of those) a special twist.

Try it yourself! It also makes a perfect gift for every foodie.

Now. Carry on!

Strawberry vinegar recipe.

19 Jun

Yesterday I was out and about. Partying if you will. Reminded me why I don’t love going out so much but hanging with friends or going to private parties. There are just too many weird people out there. It’s fun for a night but then? I go home and I’m glad that I don’t have to be out there looking for what the night might bring. Normally it brings nothing but some good stories to tell. That’s something, right? These stories will make me the hero at the next private party.
When I got home at 3 a.m. I was so hungry that I made me some of these. So good and no bad conscious about eating in the middle of the night and having problems sleeping. I slept like a baby – or a toddler because babies don’t actually sleep well. This is a stupid saying.

Well anyway there was not much I did today but sleep in, had breakfast, go out to eat ice-cream and have a (non-alcoholic) drink with my sister and something light for dinner. Like this fantastic strawberry Mozzarella salad. And do you know what’s best about it? The dressing. Because I made it with my homemade strawberry infused vinegar.

All you need is:
– a handful of strawberries
– 400 ml white wine vinegar

Wash the strawberries and cut them into half. Put them into a jar and add the vinegar. Close the lid tightly and let it sit for 1-2 weeks.

Then sieve it through a sieve and fill it in bottles.

For the salad:
– a mixed salad (with rucola and lambs lettuce is the best)
– a handful of fresh strawberries
– buffalo Mozzarella

Rip the Mozzarella into pieces and cut the strawberries. Mix it with the salad and make a dressing with the strawberry infused vinegar, salt, pepper and olive oil.

Tomorrow I have something great for you: a drink. So stay tuned.
