Home Vinegar Making

Make delicious, healthy vinegar cheaply and easily in your own kitchen.

Why make vinegar at home? It’s cheap, delicious and adds nuances of flavors to food. It is made using a “mother” so you get all the probiotic health benefits. It's a wonderful way to utilize scraps from your kitchen that would either be thrown into the garbage or the compost.  And best of all... It’s easy!

In this class we will cover:
- A general overview of vinegar and vinegar-making
- Ingredients that can be used for making home-made vinegar
- Materials needed to make your own vinegar
- Step-by-step instruction and guidance on how to create your own home-made vinegar

After a guided demonstration and Q&A, each participant will take home the materials necessary to make a jar of vinegar including a vinegar “mother” along with basic vinegar recipes to continue creating vinegars at home. Following the in-person class, participants will receive a video link of the demonstration for your vinegar making at home. The instructor will be available to contact for troubleshooting for up to a week following the class.
