Garlic and Hot Pepper Vinegar - Aceto all'Aglio e Peperoncino


Garlic and hot pepper vinegar is an excellent for seasoning salads, and also works quite nicely as a seasoning for cold meats, for example thinly sliced roast pork loin on a hot summer day. You'll need:


  • 1 quart (1 liter) white vinegar
  • 5 dried hot red peppers, shredded
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • A sprig of rosemary
  • A little salt


Lightly salt the vinegar. Crush the cloves of garlic against the side of the jar and add the remaining ingredients. Cover, put the vinegar in a dark place, and let it macerate for 2 weeks, giving the jar a good shake once daily. Filter it and bottle it, and it's ready.
