A guide to the design of vinegar bottles

Containers for vinegar are made of glass because of the acidic nature of the vinegar. These containers have been used to store vinegar for the cook for many years, and are still used nowadays in many countries. You can make your own vinegar and store it in decorative bottles. The design of the vinegar bottle is important. Therefore, read this article, which is a guide to the design of vinegar bottles.

Gather the ingredients

Choose the bottle. Olive oil bottles or decorative vinegar bottles will work well, but what's inside the bottle is as important as the bottle itself as well as what's outside. Make sure, however, that you sterilise the bottle before using them. Ingredients Gather the ingredients that you would like to use to make your flavoured vinegar such as herbs, chopped onions, beans, citrus slices, cloves of garlic, pepper corns, tomatoes, mushrooms, sprigs of dill, chilies and whatever else that you would like. Pour in the vinegar and arrange the items that you have added to the bottle. A skewer can help you to reach down inside the bottle. To push items away from the mouth of the bottle, try to use the handle of a butter knife.

The liquid

A mixture of liquids would work well for making flavoured vinegar. Red wine vinegar works well with herbal vinegar, cider vinegar works well for fruit or berry vinegar, and white wine vinegar works well when making tarragon flavoured vinegar as well garlic flavoured vinegar.

The decoration

Decorating the bottle is the last step Make decorative cards using card stock. Cut the cards to size and create a label that you can print on the card. Fold the card in half and paint or draw a painting on the front, and use calligraphy to write about the vinegar on the inside. A recipe card Add a recipe card that includes the flavoured vinegar which you made as an ingredient. Add more than one recipe, or even create a small collection of recipes. Gather raffia or ribbon, and tie it around the neck of the bottle. Create a label if you would prefer it to the card. You can either design it on the computer or draw it by hand and paint it. Create decorative charms, like those for wine bottles, to add an added something to the bottle.
