The fall is here, and the apples are hanging on the tree, ready to be used.
Sadly, my stomach doesn't like that I eat apples, but I love to rinse my hair with apple cider vinegar, so I thought I`d try to make some myself!
You will need:
- Mason jars
- Sugar + Water
- Coffee filter + rubber band
- Clean and cut apples into pieces.
- Add apples to the mason jars, 3/4 full. Be sure that the jars are clean.
- Blend 1 tbs sugar into 1 cup of water and cover the apples with water. Make as much as you need. The apples have to be covered in water to avoid molding. This can easily be done by placing a clean glass on top of the apples to press them down.
- Use a cloth, or a coffee filter with a rubber band to cover the top.
- Label the jar with the date, so you can keep track of it.
- Place the jar somewhere dark, and with a stable temperature. Like in a kitchen cupboard.
- After about 3 weeks it´s time to strain out the apple pieces and pour the soon to be apple cider vinegar into a clean mason jar. But untill then check on the apples every other day to see that the apples are under water and that no mold is growing.
- Put a new coffee filter on top, and place the jar back into the cupboard. Let it sit for another 3-4 weeks, and be sure to stir every few days.
- Pour it over to a clean jar, and add a lid. You now have apple cider vinegar.
