Homemade Rhubarb Vinegar

Karen’s Homemade Rhubarb Vinegar

A lovely ruby colored versatile vinegar with a lingering flavor of Rhubarb

Homemade Rhubarb Vinegar stored in a vintage crystal flask   

I have a special place in my heart for Rhubarb… ready to pick now through summer. My grandparents had plentiful rhubarb plants sprawling in their garden, and rhubarb pie was typically served after dinner. This beautiful ruby hued perennial has an unique flavor that is distinctive, tart and heavenly scented.

Did you know?
Rhubarb is technically a vegetable, but is legally considered a fruit. In 1947 a New York court declared rhubarb a fruit because it’s most often cooked as one in the United States.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups red wine vinegar preferably organic
  • 2 cups fresh rhubarb from 3 large stalks, preferably organic
  • 5 whole cloves

Instructions

  • Cut cleaned rhubarb into 1 1/2″ pieces, discarding all leaves. Place the vinegar, rhubarb pieces and cloves in a non reactive pot (not aluminum.) Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 3 minutes until the rhubarb has just softened and is plump. Remove from the stove and let stand, uncovered until cool.
  • I like to let it sit a bit, preferably 1 hour to let the flavors blend a bit. Strain out the rhubarb and cloves by setting a medium mesh strainer over a large bowl. Let the vinegar flow to the bottom, pressing gently on the solids.
  • HINT: I like a little rhubarb “puree” in the vinegar, gives a little body – but clear vinegar is ok too.
    Store the vinegar in a clean, sterile glass container in the refrigerator.
