Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar
I swear I learn something new every day that apple cider vinegar can be used for! It really can be used for anything from cleaning, to help make you healthier and in your chickens water to make them healthier. I have been wanting to make the switch to homemade apple cider vinegar and I am so glad that I finally did. I would love to make some really big batches but I just don’t have enough apple peels and cores. So, I settle with making what I can with what I have. With how SIMPLE and EASY it is to make I don’t know why I didn’t start doing this sooner! Oh well, better late than never I guess. This is the perfect way to use up apple peels and cores after making applesauce or even an apple pie. Once you are done making the apple cider vinegar you can throw your peels and cores into your compost bin!
- Peels and Cores from 8 Apples

- 1 Half Pint Mason Jar

2. Place apple peels and cores into mason jars.
3. Mix 1/4 honey into 4 cups of water you can use organic cane sugar. The sugar completely dissipates during fermentation.
4. Poor the water and honey mix over peels and cores into mason jars.
