DIY chive blossom vinegar

Chive blossoms soak in vinegar to create a beautiful pink vinegar that tastes like onions. It's perfect for salad dressings and replaces the need to mince up some shallots.

  • Mason jar with plastic or stainless steel lid OR plastic tupperware


  • 10 Chive blossoms
  • 1.5 cups white wine or champagne vinegar (a clear vinegar you'd use to make salad dressings with)


  • Dunk chive blossoms in water to remove bugs and dirt, shake dry (they can be wet, just not dripping wet)
  • Put blossoms in a mason jar or plastic tupperware and cover with vinegar.
  • Cover the jar and let sit for 3-7 days. The color turns bright pink in a few hours and stops gaining color after about 1 day. The flavor gets more intense the longer it sits.


Don't use metal containers or lids unless they are stainless steel. Most metals will react with the vinegar and give it an off taste. Mason jar lids are stainless steel.
