It cheats coz you're using ready made cider vinegar!


7 cardamom pods

14 sultanas (or raisins)

14 black peppercorns

1 teaspoon sage

1 teaspoon rosemary

7 cloves

300ml/1 1/4 cups cider vinegar


Simply macerate (soak) all the ingredients for 7 weeks, strain and bottle.


Use it for cooking or salad dressings.


You can also use it as a tonic or as a skin cleanser, by diluting 1 teaspoon of the vinegar with 250ml/1 cup of water.


Have fun x

That's brilliant aefre, I'm going to make it. I've got all the ingredients here so why not!


always good to use apple cider vinegar "with the mother", too. If anyone isn't sure what that means, this is quite a good explanation with details of the health benefits of ACV
