Preserving using cider vinegar
« on: July 25, 2018, 10:17 »
Does anyone know if it is OK to preserve produce using an Apple Cider Vinegar, rather than conventional vinegar? Mrs HG wants to use this healthy organic alternative. Also is the sugar content recommended for preserving required for preserving or is it just for sweetness?

Thanks.

Cider vinegar is fine for preserving and gives a milder taste to pickles.  For chutneys it cause the end result to have less bite, so make a small batch first and check you like the taste before making loads of anything.

Sugar can be in a recipe for the preserving effect, so it is not always a good idea to reduce it.  Without seeing the recipe it would be hard to say whether it was just for taste or not.

It is recommended by the FSA that the vinegar used should be at least 5%  acidity.
