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 in how to create your own home-made vinegar

Each participant will make a jar of vinegar in class to take home and also leave with a vinegar “mother” along with basic vinegar recipes to continue creating vinegars at home.

Please note, this class will be held outdoors due to COVID-19. Seating will be available. Please wear weather appropriate clothing, hats, and/or sunglasses.
