Herbs picked at the greatest heat of a sunny day should go into this vinegar. The predominant quantity should be of lemon balm, then basil, and tarragon the least. Use for salad dressings, deglazing in fish sauces, and for finishing chicken, fish, and vegetable dishes when a piquant flavor is desired. --Aubergine, Camden, Maine
