I love turning trash into treasure, and this apple cider vinegar recipe is an example of that. When I saw this method for making vinegar in Anne Simpson’s book, Your Grocery Budget Toolbox, I knew I wanted to try it. Apple cider vinegar has so many uses, including salad dressing and turning milk into buttermilk. Some people swear by cider vinegar as a digestive aid, a skin care product, and a hair conditioner (see this Apple Cider Vinegar book). It costs next to nothing to make, and it doesn’t require any work. If you can make a spot for the jar on your counter, you can make this vinegar.
Apple Cider Vinegar Price Breakdown
I don’t assign a price to water in my recipes, and since apple scraps are usually discarded, this vinegar costs just $.30 to make, or $.10 a cup. That’s less than a penny per tablespoon. It’s a wonderful flavor on salad and a helpful digestive aid.
