Today, we focused our attention on apple cider vinegar. There are a couple of different ways of going about making apple cider vinegar. All of them start with, get some apples. We discussed the pros and cons of each method.

We didn’t mention in the episode how we store our fermented foods. This is the gallon jar we use HERE. Another more economical option are these. The glass is a little thinner on them but if you’re careful with them they work just fine. Half gallon Ball jars work really well for this too. Those can be purchased HERE. We definitely recommend glass over plastic. Plastic can leach chemicals into your food if left in contact with the acid for too long.
