Spicy Asian Vinegar Recipe

1 cup rice vinegar (I prefer seasoned)
3 large cloves garlic, peeled and slightly crushed
2-3 small, thin hot peppers (cayenne, serrano), tops cut off so seeds are exposed
10-12 thin slices of ginger root

Insert garlic and hot peppers into bottle. All ingredients must be submerged in vinegar. Using a glass measuring cup, pour the herb vinegar (See the herb vinegar recipe) into the jar. Put lid on, or cork in, and let vinegar sit in a dark place for at least a week. These vinegars keep a long time, but I try to use mine up within six months.
