Wash the apples thoroughly then either cut them into cubes or slices, whichever is your preference.
Place the apples in a glass jar adding a bit of sugar (1% sugar of the apple weight, i.e. 10g sugar to 1kg apples).
The sugar is essential for the fermentation process and will completely be lost in the final product.
Fill up the jar with water, cover with gauze and leave in room temperature of about 20°C.
In 7-10 days the jar will start releasing a sour odor.
As the smell grows stronger, it is suggested to keep the jar in another room besides the kitchen.
In one month your homemade ACV will be ready.
You will be able to taste the sourness of the vinegar.
When the AVC is ready, strain the liquid through gauze and store in sterilized glass bottles.
If you prefer your ACV a bit more sour, leave it to sit a few extra days before straining.
