Supplies You Need

  • A clean glass jar or glass bowl

  • Organic apple scraps, chopped apples, or apple peels.... or all of the above!

  • Sugar cane

  • Filtered water or distilled water

  • A cheesecloth, coffee filter, or wig cap

  • Large Rubber bands

Step 1

I clean my apples by boiling it for 10 seconds on each side.

Step 2

I peel and chop the apples into small cubes, down to the core. (Save your seeds😊)

Step 3

Fill your glass bowl or jar halfway with the apples and apple peels.

Step 4

Pour the distilled water over the apples until covered, add 1 tablespoon of sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. (1Tablespoon per one cup of water used)

You can add less if you'd like. Sometimes I add 2 tablespoons for 6 cups water. I also use raw sugar cane instead of refined sugar.

Step 5

Place a breathable towel, panty hose, cheesecloth and secure it with a rubber band.

Step 6

Place in a dark, stable room temperature area for 2-4 weeks. Stir and cover the apples with the water everyday for 1-2 weeks to prevent mold.

**Day 3

Step 7

After 2-4 weeks of fermenting, your apples will look mushy and slightly brown. Strain the apples in a clean glass jar and continue to cover it with the same cheesecloth and rubber band, allowing it to sit in the same en

Step 8

Set your strained ACV in a stable room temperature dark space with a cheesecloth.

***I set my ACV for about another month but you can let it sit longer, if you choose (1-3 months is recommended. You can taste or smell it to see if it is up to your liking. As far as taste you may be looking for a tangy, vinegary, alcoholic kind of taste.

(I placed one particular jar in an unstable environment and unfortunately half of the apple cider vinegar evaporated).

Step 9

When it is up to your liking, cover your ACV with an air-tight lid and ENJOY!

Hope it helps and Hope you enjoyed 😊
