Strawberry Infused Vinegar

Strawberry Vinegar

1 pint strawberries

Wash, hull, and slice strawberries. Place in a clean jar with a tight fitting lid. Cover with vinegar. Let sit for 2-3 weeks, shaking occasionally. Vinegar will turn pink and strawberries will soften and lighten in color. When ready, strain through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. Place in a clean jar. Vinegar will keep in a cool dry place for up to a year.
