How to Make Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider vinegar is a staple ingredient used in many recipes. Because it’s used so frequently, it would be good to know how to make your own in case you don’t have any on hand. It can be used to cook fish, meat, and chicken dishes, and it adds the right amount of tartness to salad dressings.
Apple cider vinegar is a versatile kitchen staple. You can use it for cooking or dressings, but it’s also great if you just add a tablespoon to a glass of water or apple juice. Apple cider vinegar is also used as a supplement in the drinking water for the health of animals. It’s generally thought to be great for every system of the body aside from the enamel of your teeth, so just don’t use it as a mouth wash.
It’s easy to make your own at home, especially if you don’t know what to do with those perfectly good apple scraps.
The best part about this recipe is it features herb-infused honey to give you additional medicinal benefits. Below is the simple recipe for making your own apple cider vinegar with herb-infused honey.
Why Make Honey Infused Apple Cider Vinegar?
Recent research studies have found that apple cider vinegar has many health benefits. Apple cider vinegar can reduce cholesterol, glucose, and insulin levels and prevent plaque build-up in the arteries. It also fights fungal infections.
The acetic acid found in vinegar effectively manages weight loss and improves digestion. Honey is also a great source of nutrients and antioxidants and the two just pair so well together.
Many people who believe in apple cider vinegar’s therapeutic properties drink it daily. If you would like to try a daily tonic, you can consume apple cider vinegar on its own or mixed with seasonings or other flavored beverages.
The honey included in this recipe minimizes the tartness, so you may find it more palatable to drink this way. Including onion powder, garlic powder, rosemary, ginger, or turmeric will create some unique flavors and mask a strong sour vinegar taste.
A new flavor or combination each day may keep you motivated to maintain your daily apple cider vinegar consumption goals since consistency is key in order to experience health benefits.
Apple cider vinegar is also an eco-friendly cleaning agent. People wash their faces, bodies, and hair with it, as it’s considered a great topical for the skin with anti-aging properties.Infusing Honey into Apple Cider Vinegar

Infused Apple Cider Vinegar
1 large jar (one that can hold about 4 cups)
A double boiler
- Peels and cores from 8 apples
- 2 tablespoons of infused honey
- Paper towels
Place the apple cuttings in a large jar.
- Fill with water so all the apple cuttings are submerged.
- Stir in the infused honey.
- Cover with a paper towel.
- Store at room temperature for two weeks. For best results, keep the jar in the dark- but shake it occasionally.
- After 2 weeks, strain the apple pieces out and let the liquid sit for another month at room temperature.
After this period of time, taste the vinegar to see if it is your desired acidity. If so, store in an airtight container at room temperature. If you’d like a greater level of acidity, you can leave it on the counter for a few more days. Taste each day to see when it reaches the level you prefer.
When you are happy with the taste, you can then store it in an airtight container. It is now ready to use when you are ready to make a recipe or if you want to start incorporating a daily shot of apple cider vinegar into your routine.
