The Pandemic Pantry – An Experiment

2 Comments

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I had set the apple peels and cores aside for another project.

In the interests of wasting nothing, I am experimenting with making apple cider vinegar.  I read and consulted several online recipes before deciding on the exact method to use.

But first I needed some suitable fabric to cover the jars.  I found a scrap of white linen from which to cut circles and I overlocked the edges.

The peels and cores were packed into the glass jars, covered with water and sugar added.  The covers are held in place with rubber bands.  I labelled them with the details and they are now residing in a rarely-opened cupboard above the oven.

NOTES:

The apples were organic so pesticide residue is not an issue.

Tonight I found this blog post which has recently been updated and indicates that what I am making should be correctly called Apple Scrap Vinegar.

I will let you know how the experiment turns out in a couple of months.

  1. I can remember in 1930’s my mum used to use the peels and cores of apples to make Apple Jelly Jam. I might even have the recipe if I searched enough.

    • I did consider apple jelly (there are plenty of recipes on the internet) but I decided we could use the vinegar more than more jam/jelly at the moment.
