Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 3/4 cup blueberries with sweetened rice vinegar in a stainless-steel or enamel saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Stir in honey. Remove from heat. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a clean pint jar or bottle. Pour mixture through, pressing gently with the back of a serving spoon to express liquid. Discard remaining solids. Add another 3/4 cup blueberries to the jar or bottle. Cover tightly with a nonmetallic lid (or cover with plastic wrap and tightly seal with a metal lid). Store vinegar in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months. Before using vinegar, drain and discard berries. Makes about 1 cup.
