How to make homemade pineapple vinegar from your leftover pineapple rind!

Are you a fan of home fermentation like I am? I want to share with you today a simple technique for making your own vinegar. Not just any old vinegar - pineapple vinegar!

Probably not quite as much as coffee, my love for coffee is the stuff sonnets are made of. ;) But it's my … [Read More...]
