Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar

Here is a recipe for homemade apple cider vinegar. It is really simple to make, and I have included an additional recipe for a really yummy salad dressing.

So, I bought a gallon of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar from a local apple orchard last year and I just finished it up. In the bottom of the jug was the vinegar mother. Instead of throwing it away, I decided to do an experiment with it. I bought two cans of apple juice from the freezer section and made it according to the directions. Next, I found a glass jug in the garage and washed it up to use for my fermentation experiment. I poured the juice into the jug and added the vinegar mother from the bottom of last years’s jug of vinegar. I put a lid on loosely so air could get to it, and within two days, I had a huge mother floating on top and a gallon of homemade, raw apple cider vinegar.
