The Making of Vinegars
Cindy Hale of Clover Valley Farms & Vinegary will give a quick introduction to the different type of vinegars (i.e. white distilled, Balsamic, Wine and Cider Vinegars, etc.), how they are made and their different characteristics. She will then lead you through the steps of creating your own homemade fruit vinegars. You bring some kind of wine (i.e. red or white grape, fruit, homemade or commercial) in a quart-sized canning jar. She will provide the bacterial “mother” and an easy to follow procedure for culturing your own homemade and healthful vinegars.
