I'm going to show you how to make your own homemade apple cider vinegar from scratch
most of you probably know how beneficial versatile and useful apple cider vinegar is in your kitchen,
in your household, for your health and for your beauty. And for those of you who are new to this,
I'll leave some links in the description box down below,
so you can check it out. And without any further ado let's get started.
To make your own homemade apple cider vinegar you obviously need a jar to put your apple scraps in
but please do yourself a favour sterilize your jars
before using them because you don't want any bad bacterias to ruin your projects.
Wash your apples! If you don't use organic apples, I highly recommend to wash them with baking soda
to eliminate part of the pesticides. Then peel and cut them according to what you want to do.
And make sure to save the scraps. So once you have finished cutting and peeling your apples
it's time to put everything together in your jar.
Put the scraps in your jar and top them off with preferably
filtered water. If you don't have filtered water, no problem,
simply fill a pitcher with water the night before so that the chlorine can evaporate.
I use plain white organic sugar, but you can use any sugar of your choice. The sugar is necessary
to feed the bacterias and to get the fermentation going. Don't fill
your jar up to the brim because during the fermentation process it's going to be bubbly
and this could make a mess. So three-quarter of a jar would be perfectly fine.
So to avoid the building of mould on top of your apple scraps there are two tricks:
either you give your apple scraps a good stir with a wooden spoon every day at the beginning
of the fermenting process and then every other day in the end, or you use a second jar to
press your apple scraps down on the water. And that is what I'm going to show you now.
So the last thing you have to do is to cover your jar with a breathable cloth or a coffee filter
and fix it with a rubber band. And then place it aside in a cosy dark place
So after 30 days, this first fermentation will be done you can then strain your apple cider vinegar
into another jar. Please make sure to either use a cloth or a plastic strainer and not
a metallic strainer. Let it sit and ferment for another month and then you have a lovely,
nice and delicious apple cider vinegar. So that's it for today's video I hope you got some
inspiration and motivation to make your own homemade apple cider vinegar from scratch.
