How to make raw apple cider vinegar

Raw and organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) is incredibly easy to make at home. The only downside is the time it takes to ferment (2-3 months). ACV has many benefits for digestive health, skin and hair and I personally use it in my toner recipe for an even complexion, and in my mouthwash recipe. You can buy the clear, processed ACV at most grocery stores. However, raw ACV is best because it contains all the beneficial nutrients that are otherwise destroyed once processed (buy the good stuff here).

Raw ACV is a cloudy liquid that has a thick, cloudy substance (known as the “mother”) that sinks to the bottom. Since, I realise that not everyone can afford to buy everything organic (including myself), I’d like to share how you can make raw ACV at home. If you’d like to make organic ACV, then simply use organic apples.
