Fresh Mint Vinegar

1 cup chopped fresh mint leaves 2 cups white wine vinegar

Place mint in a wide mouth pint glass jar, and set aside. Pour vinegar into a non-aluminum pan; bring to a boil. Pour hot vinegar over mint in jar and cover with lid. Let stand at room temperature 2 weeks. Pour mixture through a wire mesh strainer lined with 2 layers of cheesecloth into a decorative bottle or jar, discarding mint. Seal bottle with a cork or an airtight lid. Makes about 2 cups vinegar. Select a bottle with artistic flair to give this vinegar in. When the bottle is empty, the recipient can wash it thoroughly and fill it with a favorite olive oil. Directions if giving as a gift: Use in vinaigrettes and in fruit or vegetable salads.
