Om arrangemanget

Turn apples, berries and herbs into flavorful homemade vinegars. Do you have too many apples, or are looking to learn to craft more goods for your pantry? Come and learn the basics of making vinegar, a perfect way to use overripe, or damaged fruits and turn them into tasty homemade. This course will be held in English.


Vinegar is a double fermentation process. First, yeast consumes sugars within fruits and produce alcohol; then consume the alcohol and convert it into acetic acid. During the workshop we go through the basics of vinegar making, prepare fruits, herbs to then make vinegar. Each participant may make 2 jars with any flavoring from the fruits and herbs supply. The jars are then taken home for the continuation of the fermentation process and for you to taste the result. After the course, you will be able to create your own vinegar and repeat the process
from making vinegar alone at home with many fruits and herbs.

Previous knowledge

No prior knowledge is required to participate in this course. The course is suitable for so many: those interested in fermentation, or in learning a way to reduce fruit waste by making vinegar. Or you might have too many apples at home and would like to know how to use and preserve them into vinegar, or anyone who wants to craft more goods at home with simple and natural ingredients.
