Sherry Blizzard

I can't take credit for this recipe. It comes from my local extension office at UAF (University of Fairbanks, Alaska) I love, love, love berry vinegars and this one is very good. Use it for everything from marinades to barbecue sauce, to salad vinegrette. Yeah, it takes a little time to marry the flavors but it is worth it. I made some seriously good barbecue sauce with this and will serve with moose chicken fried strips tonight.
