Recipe: make apple cider vinegar yourself

To make apple cider vinegar yourself, you will need:

  • a large bowl
  • a rubber band
  • a kitchen towel
  • large mason jars
  • Bottles for filling the vinegar

Tip: For a sweeter apple cider vinegar, you can use sweet apples.


  • Apple leftovers (core, peel, etc. - preferably from organic apples)
  • water

The amount of about 4 large apples or the remains of about 8 apples make about 2 liters of vinegar.


  1. Put all of the apple scraps in a large bowl and fill with cold tap water until the apple scraps are covered a good two centimeters with water.
  2. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel, secure it with a rubber band and leave it to ferment in a cool place for about a week. Important: Stir every day so that no mold forms, but white foam, which is a sign that fermentation has started. If that takes too long, you can add a handful of sugar when preparing the apple cider vinegar, then you often have a foam after two days. The sugar is no longer present in the finished vinegar.
  3. As soon as a foam has formed (this should happen after a week at the latest), pour the mixture through a kitchen towel and add the remaining apple mixture to the compost.
  4. Fill the still unripe vinegar into large mason jars (preserving jars) and cover them with a cloth - do not unscrew so that the vinegar can breathe!
  5. Now let the vinegar stand in a warm place (around 25 ° C) for another five to six weeks (you no longer have to stir). During this time the so-called "mother of vinegar" is formed. It forms first on the surface, but then sinks.
  6. After six weeks the vinegar has darkened. It clearly smells like apple cider vinegar. Do not be surprised about the gel-like mass floating around, this is the "mother" and is completely harmless.
  7. Now fill the finished apple cider vinegar into bottles that you can close tightly. The vinegar stays sealed for several months. If you like cloudy apple cider vinegar, fill the mother with. But you can also sieve the mother off and use it for a new vinegar preparation. Store your vinegar in a cool place and shake it vigorously before use! The finished vinegar will ripen a little while it is stored in the refrigerator.

Now enjoy your natural, self-made apple cider vinegar in healthy salads and in the applications described above.
