Smokey Chile Pepper Vinegar Infusion Recipe

The whipping siphon excels at pulling out the fruity flavors of ingredients before the spiciness. Removing the membranes and the seeds helps to reduce the heat while maximizing the flavor extracted. Don't get me wrong though, this vinegar still packs a punch! I've indicated my favorite chile pepper blend for this recipe below, but feel free to use any dried chile peppers you have on hand.

Smokey Chile Pepper Vinegar Infusion Instructions

For the Smokey Pepper Vinegar Infusion

Make sure the apple cider vinegar is at least room temperature or slightly warmer.

Remove the stems from the chile peppers and as much of the seeds as possible. Coarsely chop the peppers then place into the whipping siphon with the apple cider vinegar. Seal the whipping siphon, charge it, and swirl for 20 to 30 seconds. Let the siphon sit for 1 minute longer. Place a towel over the top of the siphon and vent it. Open the siphon and wait until the bubbling stops.

Strain the vinegar and let sit for at least 5 minutes before using.
