Basil Wine Vinegar

1 pint dry white wine
1 pint white vinegar
20 bunches fresh young basil

Place wine and vinegar in a saucepan over low heat. Bring to scalding but do not boil.

Meanwhile, wash basil and place in a sterilized quart jar. Pour hot liquid slowly over basil. Seal tightly and store in a dark place for 3 weeks.

Strain vinegar through cheesecloth and pour into smaller sterilized bottles. Add a sprig of basil to each bottle, if you wish.

Makes 1 quart.
