How to Make Fruit Scrap Vinegar Using Strawberry Tops
- 1-2 cups Strawberry tops or other fruit scraps
- 1/2 cup Cane sugar divided
- 8 cups Spring water
- Add the fruit scraps to a 1/2 gallon glass jar.
- Add 1/4 cup sugar.
- Fill jar with spring water.
- Stir well and cover jar with a coffee filter or clean cloth and secure with a rubber band.
- Stir contents of jar daily. A wooden toothpick can be useful for this purpose.
- After a few days, add the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar to the jar and stir well to incorporate.
- Continue to stir contents of jar daily.
- After 30 days, vinegar should have developed. Test by smell, taste, or using a pH strip. If you use a pH strip, you are looking for a pH of lower than 4.5.
- Once you are satisfied with the taste of the fruit scrap vinegar, strain out the fruit and decant the vinegar in a clean glass bottle with a top.
