    Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Recipe

  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Recipe Description:

    Homemade vinegar has a wonderful deep rich taste. Different from commercial vinegars it is quite unique and you will always want to have some on hand. Easy to make, it is really the magical microbes that do the work. You just have to give them a pot and two ingredients and they create their magic.

    Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1-½ cups of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar (It has to have the mother in it, such as Braggs)
  • 4 ½ cups of good apple cider
  • Recipe Instructions:

    Place the vinegar and the apple cider in a crock or jar make sure the crock does not have lead based paint and is food grade. It should hold at least a gallon with enough extra room for air circulation.

    Cover the opening with a cloth or cotton tea towel. Place in a warm spot (68 to 70 F) for 1 to 2 months. Check it occasionally and sniff it. It will gradually take on a distinct vinegar smell and you will notice a slight film on the top.

    When the mixture taste and smells like vinegar pour a third and place it in airtight bottles.

    Save the culture and extra vinegar and replace with equal amounts of apple cider and start the process again. The process will take less time so check it often. Mine has been done as soon as two weeks.

    You can also bottle all of it and throw away the culture.

    You can also make red wine vinegar or white wine vinegar using the same recipe but you have to find a red and white wine vinegar with the mother in it. This means unpasteurized vinegar. You will see sediment at the bottom of the bottle. It will say unpasteurized or with the mother on the bottle. I have found some at the local health food store. So the recipe is as follows.

    1-1/2 cups of red wine vinegar with mother (I use the Eden brand with the mother)

    4 ½ cups of red wine

    Or for white wine vinegar

    1-1/2 cups of white wine vinegar with the mother

    4 ½ cups of white wine

    Follow the instructions above
