How to turn golden into pink vinegar?

Kids playing in the streets at 10am? School must be out for summer.


How to turn golden vinegar into pink one? On Sunday I gathered chives flowers in the garden, snipped off right underneath the flower, and stuffed them in a jar. About 30 of them.



I filled up the jar with rice wine vinegar (apple cider vinegar would be good, too), and let it sit on a window sill for about 4 days. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a light oniony flavor, making it a great ingredient for e.g. tomato salad.


On day 4, I poured the vinegar into another bottle and threw away the chive flowers (don’t squeeze the flowers, just let the vinegar drain). Not only a wonderful oniony flavor, but also…. pink colored vinegar.
