Apple cider vinegar is such a pantry and cleaning staple in any home. While it's not the most expensive thing in the world to buy, if you eat a lot of apples, you might as well make your own. The taste of fresh Apple Cider Vinegar is quite different to store bought, even the organic variety, and it's so easy to make.
You can create an endless supply of Apple Cider Vinegar for free by simply using the scraps you are currently composting or tossing in the bin. Not only is it is incredibly simple, but making it yourself gives you control over the contents. If you use Apple Cider Vinegar a lot in cooking, you will really notice the fresher more delicate taste.
You will need a jar (preferably wide mouthed), your organic apple peelings, cores and scraps and a piece of breathable cloth to secure over the jar opening. (Minus the seeds.)
Vinegar lasts for ages so if you can have a number of jars in various stages of fermentation at any time so that you have a constant supply.
You can of course use your whole fresh or old apples in exactly the same way as scraps. The smaller you cut them, the faster your fermentation.Image: Wiktory/Shutterstock
That is a great simple recipe. I am surprised that all you need is filtered water. Fantastic,

I have been making my own apple cider vinegar for years. It really is this simple. The best thing about making your own is that you know exactly what is in it!

Great - a must try! Agreed buying ACV does get a little expensive when you use so much of it. Will keep you updated on how I go.
