How to Make Vinegar from Apple Peelings

How I LOVE thrifty nifty things. And making vinegar from something you throw away – apple peels and cores is RIGHT up my alley! I first learnt about it from Blue Bear Wood on our Foraging Tops & Tricks hangout. Simply genius and so easy.

How to Make Vinegar

To Make Vinegar you will need:

Apple peelings, a jar, muslin, water, a dark warm space

How To Make Vinegar from Apple Leftovers

1) Let your peelings go brown

2) Pack them into a jar and cover with water (you can top this up over the course of a few days, once the scum starts to form, leave it and start a new jar)

3) Cover with a muslin (do not seal, you need to let it breath)

4) Put in a warm dark place. After a month you can start taste testing it

5) Once ready. Strain and decanter into a bottle. If you find your vinegar is cloudy, that is fine (it is apple sediment and good), if you don’t like that though, you can strain it through a coffee filter.
