I use a reasonable amount of lemons when food preparation as well as entertaining. I despise to see the peels or the fruit themselves go to throw away so I try to utilize them in various methods.

In my mind, there’s nothing like the scent of fresh lemons or any citrus for that matter.

So today I’m sharing an extremely simple means to make use of leftover citrus by making your very own homemade lemon vinegar

Simply place the peels, (no fruit) right into a huge mason container, or any kind of large tidy jar, and also cover with white vinegar.

I like lemon as well as lime peels however you could easily use peels from clementines and oranges which you are probably currently consuming throughout the wintertime. Do not toss them out. Instead, gather them and add them to a container. After that pour white vinegar over top.

After about a week or two you can put the perfumed vinegar right into a spray container.

I such as to utilize a mix of 1/2 vinegar to 1/2 water. You can use it right without added water, or you might blend 1/3 vinegar to 2/3 water if you favor it a bit much more thinned down.
