It was about a month ago that I strained the fruit vinegar that I had left on the kitchen counter. I was going to strain the other jars but they had been stored in the basement, where it’s much cooler than in the kitchen so I left them longer.
Last week I strained the vinegar from the jars that had been in the basement.
That’s a lot of great fruit vinegar.
Here’s the tops of the jars so you may can read what all we have.
There are four quarts of pear; one quart and one pint of plum, and two quarts apricot.
What I strained last month was 1/2 gallon peach, 1 quart aprium, 2 quarts and 1 pint of dandelion.
That’s 12 quarts and 2 pints of fruit vinegar.
Fruit vinegar can be added to oil to make a great salad dressing. My favorite way to use it: Mix a little honey in warm water. Stir til the honey melts into the water. Pour a glass of cold fizzy water, add in a couple of teaspoons of fruit vinegar and add the honey water. I try to drink one glass of this every morning.
There are all kinds of purported health benefits attributed to consuming fruit vinegars. Of course, I don’t know what’s true and what’s not true but here’s an article that might shed some light on whether there’s health benefits or not.
