Red Clover Blossom Vinegar Recipe

I’ve heard that vinegar can be made by pouring 1 1/2
gallons of boiling water over one gallon of tightly packed
red clover blooms. Let the mixture stand overnight and
strain out the blossoms. Add one pound of brown sugar and
1 1/2 pints molasses. Dissolve one cake yeast in 1/2 pint
water and add that also. Place the mixture in a stone crock
and let it stand in a warm room until it sours. This takes
awhile as the sugar must turn to alcohol and the alcohol to
acetic acid. One thing that might speed the process is a
very large stone crock that exposes more of the solution to
the air.
