  • cider vinegar

    Can anyone give me some idea how long it should take for cider to turn to vinegar. I had the last batch of cider from last year which didn't taste too good so I thought I'd just leave it in large coffee jars with a muslin over the top to keep out insects and make some vinegar for this years pickles. I added some unpasteurized organic cider vinegar to each jar to kick start it and it's been going three months now. I dipped my finger in and it tastes vinegary but is there an easy way to check when it's finished the process.

    There's some useful information on cider vinegar making here:

      Or I'll send my Boss lady round to give it one of her 'looks'. Instantaneous.

        Thanks for the info littlemark. I especially like the bit about vinegar 'eels' livening up the salad bowl

          Im new to potato growing, I've just received an order of seed potatoes (see photo). Notice the 10 or so large shoots that have been ripped off the tubers during transit. Some of the shoots that are still attached look limp and broken and slightly rotten, there is a very slight smell coming off them....
