Very Easy Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar

Very Easy Homemade Apple Cider VinegarThe usual method of making apple cider vinegar is to firstly make cider and then turn it into vinegar. This requires in my estimation a lot of PT so I looked for a quicker method and found this recipe. It was easy to do and worked out to be very successful so I highly recommend this recipe. It does take about 7 months to ferment into vinegar, so you need patience. Once you have one batch of vinegar you have ‘the mother’ the web-like structure that forms in the vinegar, which is the starter to your next batch.
This method uses whole, organic apples and takes about 7 months to ferment into vinegar.
You’ll need:

  • 10 organically-grown apples
  • a glass bowl or bottle
  • a piece of cheesecloth to cover the bowls/bottlesVery Easy Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar


  • Wash the apples and cut into quarters. You can optionally core and peel them.
  • Let the air turn the apples brown.
  • Then put them into a bowl or a glass bottle (which I prefer) and cover with filtered water.
  • Cover the bowl  or bottle with cheesecloth and leave in the warmest, darkest place you can find  for 6 months. (Since most apple varieties are available fresh in March, the 6 months takes you right through the winter months so finding a warm spot in the house could be a challenge)
  • After the 6 months is up, you’ll notice a grayish scum on the surface of the liquid. This is normal. Strain the liquid through a coffee filter into the larger bowl, and leave it for another 4-6 weeks, covered with the cheesecloth.

And there you have it, your own homemade apple cider vinegar.
