Making homemade wine vinegar

 

I know it sounds unbelievable, but we often have wine leftover.  We also have a difficult time finding a decent wine vinegar, so I had the idea of making it out of the leftover wine.  After all, how hard can it be?  Actually, unlike other projects, this one turned out to be really easy!  All you need is a live vinegar “mother”, add it to the wine in a wide mouth jar and put a cheese cloth over the top so mom can breath.  Put it in a dark place, and wait a couple of months.  Then filter, bottle and refrigerate it when it’s ready.  That’s it.  (note: The mother came from a couple of tablespoons of Bragg apple cider vinegar that has a live mother.)

Tip:  We also wanted to keep track of the identity of the wine we made it from, so I made these cute little tags by taking a picture of the wine label and then printing it to put on the tab – perfect!  Cute enough to be gifts.
