How to make Raspberry Vinegar, easy recipe
For this simple recipe we will only need vinegar, the one we prefer, raspberries and cinnamon stick. In addition to a glass jar. So that the vinegar takes the aroma and flavor of the raspberries, it has to rest with them between a week and ten days. And it is preferable that it is in a glass jar.
We will not cover it hermetically during this time, but it will be enough to put a cork or a cloth fastened with a rubber band.
Regarding the vinegar, choose the one you like the most. Depending on whether you like it stronger or milder. Although we are going to follow this recipe with white vinegar, you can use the one you like the most.
We will continue heating the vinegar with the cinnamon, so that it takes its aroma and flavor. And, once infused with the cinnamon, we will mix it with the raspberries. Now all we have to do is let it rest for at least a week. Until it takes the flavor of the raspberries.

Flavored Vinegar with Raspberries
- 200 ml White vinegar
- 100 g Raspberries
- 1 cinnamon stick
- Put the vinegar in a saucepan and heat over medium heat for a few minutes. When it is hot, but not boiling, add the cinnamon stick and remove from the heat.Let it cool.
- After a few hours, when it is completely cold, put the vinegar in a glass jar, together with the previously washed raspberries. Cover with a cork or a piece of cloth fastened with a rubber band and let stand in a cool, dry place for 7 to 10 days.
Every day, or every other day, we are going to move the mixture slightly. This way the raspberries will release all their flavor. After the indicated time, we can use our raspberry vinegar in our favorite recipes.
This raspberry vinegar can be made with all the wild berries we can think of. For example, blackberries, blueberries, cherries… Or we can even combine them as we like.
In addition to letting the vinegar macerate with the fruit, we can also add some more crushed raspberries. In this way they will bring a more colorful color to our vinegar. Only in this case remember to strain the vinegar before using it after the ten days of rest.
And finally, if you want your vinegar to have a sweeter touch, perfect for dressing fruit salads, add one or two tablespoons of sugar when you infuse the cinnamon stick.
And with this we finish our great raspberry flavored vinegar, a great vinegar ideal to give more color and flavor to our dishes.
