It was time for the final filtering and bottling of peach, pear and apple vinegars started last harvest season. I still have another gallon of apple cider vinegar to filter and bottle, but I would like the mother in the jar to get a bit larger before disturbing the contents. The nice thing about the vinegars is that they are organic and created from fruit from our trees or the orchard at the bottom of the hill.
Earlier this week I also started lemon and orange extract as well as a citrus liqueur for next summer. I find that extracts are some of the simplest things to make. All you need is some rinds, seeds or pods, an inexpensive vodka, and time to make luscious extracts.
Now to feed the sourdough starter and have a nice cup of coffee.
Have a great day…
