Keeping it simple when it comes to menu planning and preparing meals is important to me. I start with what I have growing in my garden, preserved in my pantry or freezer, and what I’m able to source locally. I harvest Aronia Berries in the autumn from the stunning bush that grows outside my dining room window. Blueberries or currents would work well, too. I place the berries in a glass jar and pour raw apple cider vinegar over them until they are completely covered. Then I put them in my dark, cool pantry for at least 2 weeks. When I drain off the vinegar, it has transformed into a beautiful, bright Aronia Berry Vinegar I can use in my Simple Salads all year long.
