I bought a whole bunch of organic, locally-grown apples at our Wednesday markets a few weeks back and the last few were still hanging around slightly mushy.
I decided to make a German apple cake, which sounded delish, and was left with a whole pile of apple skins and cores. After a bit of Google browsing I decided to make my own apple cider vinegar using these easy instructions.
The cake was delicious and moist with all those apples in there; the vinegar I won't know about for approximately 2 months.
There are so many uses for apple cider vinegar, it's a bit like bicarb for household uses.
I've just made up a batch of my own rosemary hair rinse, using Christine's easy directions here on her Slow Living Essential's blog (which is a great read btw!) and have the shiniest hair I have for a long time!
Other uses for apple cider vinegar include:
- as a face toner
- weight loss / detox
- repelling fleas
- relieving sunburn
- removing stains from teeth
- reducing body odour
- treating age spots and acne
- fighting allergies
- reducing dandruff
- plus heaps of uses for cooking
On a completely separate note, the Queen decided to visit little old Brisbane recently and I had a great view form my 33rd floor office
Pity my phone camera doesn't have such a great zoom.
Hope you're having a great week
