Make Your Own Apple Cider Vinegar

homemade apple cider vinegar

Here’s why I love the Internet. I found this nice tutorial for DIY Apple Cider. I had taken pictures of my own so I could do my own tutorial but I have no idea where those pictures went to. And since Real Food Real Deals already did it, I don’t have to retake my own pictures.

When I make apple sauce or do any sort of baking with apples, this is what the cores and peels get used for. Cheap & easy, plus no waste. The math figures out to be about 10¢ per cup. I did even better on my last batch since I used the free apples someone passed along to us.

You can also use other fruits to make vinegar. Pears and peaches work well.

If you’re wondering what to do with apple cider vinegar, here are 50 uses. I use it a lot around the house and for home remedies.

NOT the prettiest apples ever but my daughter made a small batch of applesauce with a few of them over the weekend and they taste like apples do. These were picked from someone’s apple tree and passed on to us. Apple cider vinegar and applesauce making posts are forthcoming!

I LOVE tofu-kan and it’s the only kind of tofu a couple of my kids will eat. I think it’s because it has a firm, meatier texture to it. It’s great stuff for noodle and pasta dishes , salads,stir fry ,or just snacking.

I grew these beautiful habaneros. I have no idea what I’m going to do with them yet. My dearest hubby has habanero hot wing induced PTSD from his fantasy football league’s draft night. I need to give it some time before he’s willing to participate in the eating of anything made with these.
