Apple cider vinegar is lauded for its multiple uses. From cooking and cleaning to various health tonics, the miracle substance can be used in so many different ways, and should be an indispensable part of your kitchen arsenal.
Can I make apple cider vinegar at home?
Yes you can – and while it may take a while, it’s pretty easy to do.
Apple cider vinegar isn’t the cheapest, with 475ml coming in at around £6.99 across the UK.
To make it at home, all you need is apples, water and sugar – much more cost effective that buying the store-bought stuff.
You can stir it occasionally, and if any scum forms on the top you can just remove it with a spoon.
After two weeks, strain the liquid and discard the scraps.
Then cover and set aside the strained liquid for at least another two weeks – you can leave it for four if you’d rather.
At this point, it should have the unmistakable smell and taste of apple cider vinegar – which means you can store it with a proper lid and use around the home.
