White Wine Vinegar
Then I had an idea. Why not make vinegar? Vinegar can be expensive. Good vinegar can be really expensive. It seems a bit silly to spend that much money for something spoiled. That is what I do though. Until now. I had an old bottle of real apple cider vinegar with the mother. You can actually see that repurposed bottle in the background. The mother, with a small amount of acv was poured into the bottle of wine. Then I ignored it. It sat on the counter for a few weeks. Every so often I would taste it. It still tasted like wine, so it sat some more.
Then the other day, it tasted like vinegar. It tasted like really good vinegar! I now had close to 2 quarts of live white wine vinegar. Time invested in this, was under 5 minutes total. Most of that was taking the pictures and writing the blog post. It will probably go into a wonderful white wine vinaigrette for dinner tonight. The rest can sit and wait to be used. Simply wonderful!
