1. Peel two mandarins (or any other citrus fruit)
2. Eat said fruit (my favorite step)
3. Put fruit peels in a glass jar. (You can use plastic, but I hate plastic in general so I went with glass)
4. Cover peel with vinegar.
5. Let sit for 2 weeks
6. drain the vinegar into spray bottle and top off with new vinegar.
7. Clean away!
So I am in the infusing phase and have yet to see if the smell of citrus makes the vinegar less offensive to the olfactory system, but I am so excited to have a use to my citrus rinds (besides composting) that I almost don't even care if it works that well or not.
|I tried both lemon and mandarin so we will see which one smells better.|
|I thought the mandarin vinegar looked pretty sitting in the sun.|
