Easy Wine Vinegar

Wine vinegar adds a wonderful flavour to salad dressings and casseroles and it is the easiest vinegar to make. To make a wine vinegar open a bottle of red (for red wine vinegar) or white (for white wine vinegar) wine. Cover the top of the bottle with cheesecloth and secure around the neck with a rubber band. Place the bottle in direct sunlight. In summer you'll have wine vinegar in approximately two weeks, at this time of year  it takes about one month to convert.  Taste after two weeks and if the vinegar is strong enough for your taste, strain and bottle it. The longer you leave it the stronger the taste will become.
