Learn to make vinegar from fruit scraps, a bit of sugar, water, and time. We'll also experiment with vinegar drinks, tonics, and shrubs, as well as infused vinegars such as Fire Cider. Maybe we'll have time to make (or at least taste) some dilly beans as well. Leave with a jar of vinegar-to-be or fire-cider-to-be.
