Habanero Vinegar

Pepper vinegar is a great way to preserve the bounty of summer peppers as well as a way to perk up everything from sautéed greens like kale and collards as well as scrambled eggs in the morning and so much more.

2 habanero peppers
1 quart apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup maple syrup


  1. Cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds and stem
  2. Combine all the ingredients and whisk until the honey and salt dissolve
