Granma Doris's Blackberry Vinegar
I had never heard of this, so checked in my Good Housekeeping 'Complete Book of Home Preserving', and there it was Fruit Vinegars. It doesn't mention the Yorkshire Pudding bit, but says it can be used to replace wine vinegar in salad dressings.
Place washed fruit in a bowl and break it up slightly with the back of a wooden spoon. For each 500g of fruit, pour in 600ml. of malt vinegar. Cover and leave to stand for 3-4 days, stirring occasionally. Strain and add 500g of sugar to each 600ml. Boil for 10minutes then cool, strain again and pour into bottles, and seal with vinegar-proof tops. Add a few whole pieces of fruit to each bottle, if liked. Sounds alright doesn't it.
