1
Remove the berries from their stems using a fork and wash them well, removing any bits of leaf or stalk
2
Place in a pan and lightly crush the berries with a potato masher, then pour over the vinegar
3
Simmer for 10 minutes, then transfer to a sterilised jar. Allow to cool before closing the jar and leave in a cool, dark place to infuse for 1 month
4
After 1 month, strain the vinegar (you can use the pickled berries in a stew or salad)
5
At this stage you can add some sugar if you'd like a bit of sweetness to your vinegar. Return the vinegar to a pan, add the sugar and heat until it dissolves
6
Transfer to a sterilised bottle
