She will then lead you through the steps of creating your own homemade fruit vinegars. You bring an unopened bottle of wine and an empty, clean a quart-sized canning jar. She will provide the bacterial “mother” and an easy to follow procedure for culturing your own homemade and healthful vinegars.
“Preserving Herbs with Vinegars and Salts” – 1 to 3 PM– Love those fresh herbs!
