Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar

Making Vinegar is one of those really easy things to do.

You can use almost any fruit.  I use apples, or rather apple peels, and cores.  So, making vinegar always begins with an apple dish, and I save the peels and cores for the vinegar.

Here’s one apple dish I make – homemade apple cinnamon oatmeal:

I use regular oatmeal and chopped apple, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar & nutmeg, add water and microwave for a few minutes.  No silly little expensive packages with a few dried bits of apple.

This is the real thing.  It’s filling and yummy, too.

Save those peels and cores and place them in a jar and cover with water.  Add a little raw apple cider vinegar as a starter culture, cover with a cloth and band and set in a dark place to ferment.

Continue adding cores and peels as you accumulate them.

Your vinegar is done when it is the strength you like.
Strain and compost the solids.
