Ingredients for Raspberry Vinegar 

Ingredients for Raspberry Vinaigrette

  • 1½ cups olive oil
  • ¾ cup raspberry vinegar, or a little less, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons honey, agave, or maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste. Place all ingredients in a glass jar. Store refrigerated. Makes about 2½ cups.


Heat the vinegar and the raspberries in a stainless steel pot until very hot, just below boiling hot. Turn off the flame, cover the pot, and set it aside for 2 days or more (if you think you will be needing this pot, just transfer the whole mixture to a glass bowl). Stir the mixture and strain it into glass jars. If desired, add a few fresh or frozen raspberries. Makes about 2 quarts. Store in a glass jar at room temperature.
