This good-for-you vinegar is super simple to make.

Gail Simmons' DIY Apple Cider Vinegar
2 cups Apple
2 tbsp honey
2 cups water
1 jar
1 coffee filter
1 rubber band

Run the jar through the dishwasher on the sanitizing setting or wash it thoroughly and set aside to cool and dry.

Fill the jar ¾ of the way up with the apple peels and cores and add in the honey or sugar.

Top cover the apples with water, leaving about an inch of air from the top of the jar but making sure that the apple peels are totally covered.

Cover with the coffee filter and fasten with the rubber band. Place in a cool dark place for at least two weeks and up to a month. Strain out the apple scraps and cover with a lid and place in the pantry until ready to use.


Tis' the season. Try making this apple cider vinegar and do a shot of it after a meal to help keep your blood sugar in check.Notes:


  • Do not use apple scraps that have any bruises or mold.
  • After a couple of weeks the vinegar should be bubbly but should not have mold. If there is mold then the vinegar must be discarded.
  • If using honey the process will take up to two weeks longer than if using sugar.
