DIY | Make Your Own Vinegar From Scraps | Recipe
Apple peels & cores or those little wild apples you can find
in abundance do not need to go to waste!
It's easy & free to make your own vinegar at home :)
Watch Step 1:
Stay tuned next week for step 2
A quick summary:
Half fill a jar with apple scraps, top it up with filtered water.
Batch 1 was just apple chunks,
Batch 2 I plopped it in the blender and blended the apples & water.)
Added 1tbs per liter of "mother" from my previous vinegar (you can use a good live store vinegar, boats organic is excellent) OR you can add organic cane sugar instead 1 tablespoon per liter.
Weigh down the apple scraps with another jar
or for the pureed apples as in batch 2, cover the jar with a paper towel or cheesecloth.
UPDATE: Stick with the scraps, ditch the puree method.
The puree method has a higher chance of spoiling and is more time consuming.
Now we wait for 10 days....And perhaps another 10.
At 10 days I checked to see if significant bubbles are forming, then decide if I will wait a bit longer or strain it. Once strained, it will go back in the jars to ferment for about 3 weeks,
gently stir with a wooden spoon every 4 days or so, once a nice mother has formed it
will be ready to bottle in smaller jars.
Isn't it wonderful! :)
