  • 1 jam jar with rust resistant lid
  • 1 bottle of white rice wine vinegar
  • edible magnolia flowers (best to nibble first to find the sweetest most flavoured)

Suggested Instructions

  1. Stuff as many magnolia flowers and flowers buds into the jar as you can fit. Press them down well.
  2. Next pour over the vinegar, and cap.
  3. Store in a cupboard for at minimum one week, and the longer the better is best.

Use in salad dressings, over steamed fish, drizzled with oil over sauteed vegetables, in a sweet dressing on exotic fruits like papaya, mango, kiwi etc. and in any other imaginative ways you can come up with.

Serves: As big as your bottle, as greedy as your glugs.

Share Your Experience. Leave A Note For Others

  1. Maybe a silly question but do you leave the petals in until the vinegar is all used up? Or remove them at some point? And thank you for the interesting suggestion!

  2. Sue, you can do either. The average time to remove them is around 4 weeks. If you leave them in, they just become pickles to use as a garnish, like sushi ginger is.

  3. Am I use the magnolia flower from my magnolia tree in Orlando,Florida, or is it a special mind of magnolia?
