Making tarragon vinegar is really easy and makes a great looking gift.

What you’ll need:

To begin, make sure the bottles are thoroughly clean. The best way is to run them through a dishwasher on high heat. Otherwise, wash them and put them in a big pot of simmering water for 15 minutes to sterilize them. Heat the cider vinegar in a large pot to a simmer. While the vinegar is heating, put a sprig of tarragon in each bottle. When the vinegar is heated, fill the bottles to the top. Cork, or close the bottles, and let cool. Wrap it beautifully and enjoy. 

Ideas for use:                                                                                                                                

More ideas: You can use any other herbs you like, and/or garlic. If you use garlic or more fragile herbs, you should refrigerate it.
You can do the same process with olive oil, but do it in smaller quantities, and refrigerate it. It doesn’t last as long and will go rancid if left out.

Comments:  this vinegar lasts forever....and, if one stuffs it with as many sprigs in as i did once, when my garden was overrun with tarragon, it simply gets stronger with age....and quite sings in a mayo with the vinegar, some tarragon mustard, and chopped fresh tarragon: killer in a chicken salad!
