Ingredients
  • 4 cups white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 4 fresh figs quartered
Instructions
  1. Bring the white balsamic vinegar to 190ºF (just under the boiling point) in a medium saucepan.
  2. Cut open the pomegranate and remove the seeds. (Click here to learn how to remove pomegranate seeds.) Crush the seeds gently with the back of a wooden spoon.
  3. Place the pomegranate seeds (and any juice) and figs in a sanitized non-reactive 1-quart jar or container. Pour the warm vinegar over the top and let the mixture come to room temperature before covering with a lid. Store in a cool dark place for 2 weeks.
  4. After 2 weeks, strain the vinegar through a fine strainer or a piece of cheesecloth. Transfer the strained vinegar to sanitized decorative bottles. If desired, add a few fresh pomegranate seeds and figs.
  5. Tie a label on the bottle and give away to friends and family, or keep for yourself.
  6. Enjoy this vinegar on salads or in a marinade or sauce for chicken or duck.
