Making Apple Cider Vinegar, Part 4

Welcome to my ongoing series on making apple cider vinegar!

My goal has been to access different ways of making this type of vinegar at home.

Other parts to this series included using a gallon jug to ferment apple juice into hard cider. This is part of a two-step process which gets to the final vinegar product.

The method below is different. I took apple slices and put them in sugar water, making sure the slices stay under water to keep the process anaerobic meaning without the presence of oxygen.

This method takes longer and does require some stirring once in a while. I think this will still be a two-step process where alcohol will be produced first followed by acetic acid. My nose will be the best guide as things move along!
