I am a 40's something homesteading mother and massage therapist. We have chickens, raise Californian rabbits for meat and fur, garden, and preserve as much as possible.
Our little apple tree has produced several bushels of organic apples (no spraying here!) and this year, while processing these golden green rbs into apple sauce, I realized that the peel/core palooza could be made into apple cider vinegar.
