 Once steeped, this vinegar is supposed to “keep for several months.
 (Garnishes and other solids left in the jar, however, may discolor or
 break down.)”
 
 Sage Caraway Vinegar
 
 1 cup packed fresh sage leaves plus sprigs for garnish, rinsed
 and spun dry
 1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds, bruised with a rolling pin
 1 3/4 cups cider vinegar
 1/4 cup water
   Put the sage leaves in a very clean 1-qt glass jar and bruise
 them with a wooden spoon.  Add the caraway seeds, the vinegar,
 and the water and let the mixture steep, covered with the lid, in
 a cool dark place for 4 days to 2 weeks.  Strain the vinegar
 through a fine sieve into a glass pitcher, discarding the solids,
 and pour it into 2 very clean 1/2-pint glass jars.  Add the sage
 sprigs and seal the jars with the lids.
