    How to make apple cider vinegar
    Basically, throw the apple leftovers into a jar, the wider the mouth the better, add enough sugar/water to cover the peels (1/4 c sugar for every 1 quart of water), cover with a clean, breathable cloth, and leave at room temperature for a week to ferment. I used a plate and weight, like what is done for sauerkraut, just to help keep all the leavings under water.apple cider vinegar, acv, homemade acv, crock

    After a week, taste (should be appley sweet) and assuming this is the case (appley sweet) remove the peels/cores, and allow the liquid to ferment for another 3-6 weeks (stirring occasionally) until the vinegar taste is to your liking. You may now transfer to clean containers for use. Store in a cool, dry, dark place.
    supplies

    Plastic disk pushed inside to hold down the apples. I did add a bit more sugar as I forgot to add a bit earlier.

    Thank you! I often wondered exactly how to make vinegar. Will try it when local apples come in.

    Gypsy, I just purchased some “natural” cider vinegar from Walmart. Says it has the “mother” in it. Would it speed up the process to add some?

    I would have to say it yup. And you can reuse the Mother as well.You just move the mother into your next batch.

    Thanks Gypsy – reminded me need to make some more.

    This is like making Kombucha in that you use the ‘mother’ to keep making more. ‘Mother’ looks icky however! :)
