Make Your Own Apple Cider Vinegar


  • 3 cups chopped apple peels and cores
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 gallon sized jar
  • cool water to fill


  • Simply place the peels and cores of the apples that you have leftover from canning, applesauce, or pie making into a gallon sized jar.
  • Stir the sugar into 3 cups of the water and pour over the apples
  • Fill jar with water to about 2 inches from the top of the jar.
  • Cover with several layers of cheescloth to help keep out bugs, but allow fermenting gasses to escape.
  • After 6 weeks, drain off the liquid. This will be hard cider at this point. Compost the apple peels/cores.
  • Store in a tightly capped jar for another 2-4 weeks to finish the fermenting process.
  • You now have vinegar!
