Notes: Yield decreases to about 3.5 cups if you use 1 (16-oz) frozen raspberries (thawed) instead of fresh.

In a nonmetal bowl, combine the raspberries and vinegar; cover and let stand for 8 hours.

Transfer to a large saucepan and add cinnamon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in honey; cool.

Pour through fine mesh strainer, discarding raspberries and cinnamon sticks. Store at room temperature for 2 weeks in clean and dry glass containers.

Raspberry Vinegar ingredients
Better Homes & Gardens 1992
Makes about 3 cups
1.5 cups fresh red raspberries or 1/2 of (12-oz) pkg frozen lightly sweetened red raspberries (1.5 cups)
2 cups white wine vinegar
1 cup dry white wine

For garnish:
Fresh red raspberries

Notes:  The vinegar will corrode metal lids.

If using fresh raspberries, thoroughly rinse the berries with cold water; drain well.

In a stainless steel or enamel saucepan, bring the 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, vinegar and wine to boiling; boil gently, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Pour the raspberry mixture into a hot, clean and dry 1-quart. Cover loosely with a glass, plastic or cork lid; set aside until the mixture cools completely. One cooled, cover the jar tightly with non-metal lid; place in a cool, dark place for 1 week.

After 1 week, line a colander with cheesecloth or a cup-shaped coffee filter. Pour the raspberry mixture through the colander and into a bowl. Transfer the strained vinegar into a clean and dry 1 1/2-pint bottle or jar. If desired for garnish or identification, add a few fresh raspberries; cover the jar or bottle with a glass, plastic or cork lid. Label and refrigerate for up to 6 months.
