Apple cider vinegar(ACV) is made from ripe, freshly crushed, apples that are fermented and passed through a rigorous process to develop the final vinegar product.

Unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar(ACV) contains a colony of bacteria, referred to as the “mother”, which has a cobweb-like appearance. This bacteria is gut-friendly and is often considered the most nutritious part of the apple cider vinegar. So make sure the one you buy contains the ‘mother’.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN ACV AT HOME

Prep time: 5
Total time: 2-3 months
Ingredients
  • 3 small apples (core and peel included, no stem)
  • 3 tsp raw sugar (I used muscavado)
  • filtered water to cover – I used about 800ml, you might need to use more or less depending on what jar/container you use, it’s shape and how the chopped apples sit in it; the most important thing is to add just enough water to cover the apples and ensure they are submerged.
Instructions
  1. Wash and chop your apples into medium sized pieces (or use the peels and cores of 6-7 small apples after making a pie). Place them in a clean, rinsed and sterilized wide mouth jar.
  2. Mix the sugar with 1 cup of water and pour on top of the apples.
  3. Add more water if needed to cover the apples.
  4. Cover the jar with a paper towel or a cheesecloth and secure it with a band. This keeps nasties away while letting the liquid breathe.
  5. Place the jar in a warm, dark place for 2-3 weeks
  6. Strain out the liquid and discard the apple pieces.
  7. Return the liquid to the same jar and cover it again (same paper or cheesecloth).
  8. Return the jar to the same warm, dark place and leave it to do its thing for roughly 4 to 6 weeks, stirring with a plastic or wooden spoon every few days.
  9. After the first 4 weeks, you can begin to also taste your vinegar and once it reaches an acidity you like, you can actually transfer it to a bottle with a lid and begin using it.
