Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is similar in colour to cider - a brownish colour with a distinct apple flavour. Apple cider vinegar usually has floating solid matter called "Mother". Mother is a natural carbohydrate produced by the vinegar bacteria. It is perfectly good for you. Apple cider vinegar has been used as a natural medicine since the days of Hippocrates in 400 B.C.
