Violet Vinegar

Flavor Profile: Low-medium acidity, low-medium sweetness.
Tasting Notes: Extremely delicate; notes of violets, grass, watercress, table grapes.
Kitchen Pairings: Very fruit/pastry oriented; pair to generally more sweet ingredients as a way of giving them greater depth.
Bar Pairings: Gin and Vodka friendly; use in Vodka/Gin & Tonics, Aviations, French 75, carbonated beverages, sparkling wine. Good substitute for orange/Meyer lemon juice.
Foraged Violets, Honey, Water, Yeast
The Idea: Wood violets have a delicate, earthy aroma that is very difficult to capture, but is really unique and fun to work with in kitchens and bars alike.  Foraging them, however, is even more difficult; just the flowers themselves possess their distinct flavor, so gathering enough to make a batch of the vinegar takes days of effort.  Merely gathering roughly 5lbs, thousands of individual flowers, produces just shy of 5 gallons. As a result, this is a rare, one-of-a-kind vinegar that’s for foodies, adventurous home chefs, and real vinegar aficionados.
