Notes

The flavor of this vinegar will start to fade after about 6-8 months, but ours never lasts that long! 
Vinegar - do not use regular white vinegar - it is too harsh.  Use rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar.  You can use apple cider vinegar, but your color won't be as pretty and the flavor of the strawberries won't be as clean.
