>> Large jar with lid
>> White pine needles to fill the jar
>> Organic cider vinegar
Thoroughly wash and dry the white pine needles. Stuff the jar full of the white pine needles; cut them in half then put into jar if you find this easier.
Next, pour the organic cider vinegar into the jar until the needles are covered. Poke with a skewer (or something similar) to ensure all air has escaped.
Put lid on. If you are using a mason jar or any other jar with a metal lid be sure to place a layer of thick plastic between the mixture in the jar and the lid. (The acid from the vinegar will cause a metal lid to rust.)
Store the jar in a cool, dark location for 6 weeks. It can be left longer for a stronger flavour if desired.
Strain and return into jar.
