We have been selling Apple Cider Vinegar from day one and it seems to be getting more and more popular. We sell Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) that was made by a local man who is no longer with us. We understand that the man regularly used local organic apples to make his ACV, however, as the ingredients are not able to be confirmed, we do not promote this product as being organic.
The ACV that we sell, is decanted from larger drums so bottles may contain traces of “mother”. The “mother” is a substance composed of a form of cellulose and acetic acid bacteria that develops on fermenting alcoholic liquids, which turns alcohol into acetic acid with the help of oxygen from the air. It is added to wine, cider, or other alcoholic liquids to produce vinegar.
As well as this ACV, that we sell in 750ml bottles for just $5.00, we also have “Super Strong ACV” which we sell in two litre bottles. The “Super Strong ACV” is suitable for feeding animals and for dilution, depending on the use required.
Vinegar (including ACV) is used directly as a condiment, and in the pickling of vegetables and other foods. Vinegar was known early in civilization as the natural result of air exposure to beer and wine, because acetic acid-producing bacteria are present globally.
We know our customers use ACV for:
- vegetable wash (5% solution)
- salad dressing
- cleaning agent (particularly in the bathroom and on hard surfaces)
- sunburn relief (dilute and pat on burnt skin or add a cupful to your bath)
- wart removal
- digestive tonic
