Herb vinegars are easy to make. Place culinary herb leaves (or edible flowers) in a clean bottle. Fill with a good-quality white wine vinegar. Let it infuse for several weeks. Sunlight will fade its color.

Containers of freshly cut herbs make lovely centerpieces or aromatic table arrangements. Let rosemary and lavender dry naturally; put others in water.
