As I posted before I am in the process of making vinegar from the skin of a pineapple that we lovingly grew. The photo above is the final fermentation stage after the first straining to remove the pieces of fruit.The whitish stuff floating on the top is a form of yeast and is harmless and helpful.
I have a photo below of my final product. Because I don’t really want to continue straining my vinegar to get a perfectly clear product, I am happy with this amount of clarity. You can see that the bottle has a stopper and a bail. When I first bottled the vinegar I made sure to “burp” the stopper a couple of times to be sure the was no more fermentation. Now I will store the vinegar in a cool closet when I am not using it.
If you ever have a peel from a fresh organic pineapple try making your own vinegar! It is easy and delicious! Eat it!
