Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar (With the Mother)

Apple Cider is one of my staples. It is way more effective than an energy drink, and a great plus is that it doesn’t give me heart palpitations. The last time I had an energy drink I thought I was going to die. My heart wanted to actively transport itself out of my chest. Instead of feeling energized, I felt anxious, hot, angry and out of control. I am low key intrigued by people who can have a Jägerbomb and live to tell a tale.

I have been using ACV on and off for the last couple of years, and I am sold. My main frustration is sometimes it goes out of stock when my bottle is close to empty, so sometimes I have to take a break from it. My body is not usually very happy about this- the fatigue and brain fog show up.

A few weeks ago, I sampled a kombucha brew that my friend made and I loved it. I told her I would make it and she asked me if I’d ever tried to make ACV. It piqued my interest and I decided to give it a shot after all the worst thing that could happen is it backfires and I go back to using the store-bought one as I restrategize.

Thanks to Wellness Mama, which is a spring of valuable information, I made my first batch. It has taken slightly over 7 weeks but I now have 400ml of raw and unfiltered homemade ACV with the mother. I made a small batch to minimize my losses.

Anyone who would like to make their own ACV, here is the recipe that I used. Making it at home is perfect especially if you use it for multiple things such as skin care, cooking, and cleaning.

I’ll share my Kombucha brewing experience in my next post.

Have a lovely week 🙂
