Sous Vide Lime and Coconut Infused White Balsamic Vinegar Recipe

Lime and coconut are such a classic pairing they even have a song about them - "You put the lime in the coconut and drink 'em both up". I like to infuse their flavors into a white balsamic vinegar but rice wine vinegar also works very well. The resulting vinegar works great in a shrub or to sprinkle over a fruit salad.

Lime and Coconut Infused White Balsamic Vinegar Instructions

For the Lime and Coconut Infused Vinegar

Preheat a water bath to 140°F (60.0°C).

Lightly scrub the outside of the limes then remove the zest with a vegetable peeler or zester. Make sure little to no pith came off as well, using a paring knife to remove any.

Combine the lime zest, coconut, and vinegar in a sous vide bag or Mason jar then seal and place in the water bath. Heat the infusion for 1 to 2 hours.

Prepare an ice bath with 1/2 ice and 1/2 water. Remove the bag or Mason jar from the water bath and place in the ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the vinegar and store in a sealed container.
