About Our Cherry Blossom Vinegar:
Cherry blossoms are a beautiful, ephemeral aspect of springtime. They also possess a unique and robust, nutty flavor. However, on their own, they don’t much taste like their namesake cherries.
To correct for that, we begin the brewing process a year prior, using cherries from Quaker Valley Farm, as well as wild sour cherries from our own property we forage here in Delaplane we begin making a cherry wine that will ferment over the course of a year. Then, in the following cherry blossom season, we begin taking the blossoms and using them almost like hops: to finish the vinegar. When paired together the flavor is actually enhanced and the cherry comes through more brilliantly than simply as a cherry vinegar, as well as bringing a nutty, earthy quality that makes the overall flavor profile reminiscent of cherry pie!
