You will need:

  • 1 kg of ripe apples;
  • sug­ar, depend­ing on the vari­ety (50 g for sweet, 100 g for sour);
  • 10 g yeast;
  • wide enam­el bowl.


  • Pre­pare the apples: wash, fine­ly chop and remove the core.
  • Pour into a saucepan and fill with water so that its lev­el is no more than 6 cm above the apples.
  • Add sug­ar and leave to boil, and after 30 min­utes add yeast.
  • Leave the pan warm for 2 weeks, stir the con­tents 3 times a day.

After two weeks have passed, strain the apple cider vine­gar, pour into a wide-mouthed dish and cov­er with cheese­cloth. And then — insist 2 months. You can store apple cider vine­gar in the refrig­er­a­tor and prefer­ably in glass.
