Homemade cranberry vinegar makes every salad taste festive and every healthy family meal more fun. It also makes a beautiful homemade holiday gift.

- Place the cranberries into a large bowl. Heat up the vinegar in a pot, until it begins to release steam ( do not boil!) Mix the cranberries into the vinegar. Pour the mixture into jars that have been rinsed with boiling water. Let the jars cool, by keeping them open for an hour. Close the jars and store in a dark, cool place for 4 days. Using a cheesecloth over a fine colander, strain the vinegar into a large batter bowl with a handle or into a large, nonreactive saucepan. Transfer the vinegar to clear bottles that have been rinsed with boiling water. You can put a few cranberries on a toothpick and insert this toothpick into a vinegar bottle as decoration.
