  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 oz fresh basil

In a blender, add basil drinking vinegar, salt, black pepper, Dijon mustard and garlic. Combine on low speed. With the blender running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil to create an emulsion.

McClary Bros. Apple Pie Glaze December 15 2015

This recipe was given to us by Jess Caswell. She's one of our main vinegar slingers. You've probably seen her at our tasting room, if not, go say hi. She's awesome.

 Combine apple cider, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar into a small sauce pot.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a soft simmer.  Reduce the liquid by half.  Add cornstarch slurry.  Bring to a boil to thicken for about 5 minutes.  Take pot off of heat. Wait 10 mins then add our McClary Bros. Apple Pie Drinking Vinegar. Season to taste (TT) with salt.  Enjoy!

*A cornstarch slurry is a mixture of cornstarch and COLD water mixed together.  The mixture should have the look of heavy cream.  Make sure you use cold water and it is mixed well before adding to hot liquids.
