I want to check that if I juice the orange and mandarins and cut up the shells, will it be ok to use them in with vinegar, or I’ve already squeezed out the oil?
I always add lemon myrtle oil in my vinegar with water for cleaning – love the smell, but am happy to try orange/lemonade/mandarin oils this time to save money as I’ve got heaps growing here…
Should keep lid on them while fermenting?
Where could I find larger bottle of vinegar than those from shops?
Looking forward to this.
Cheers! :hug:June 29, 2011 at 10:35 pm #499208mudhenMember
from what I can tell, the oil is in the outside skin part of the citrus fruit only. If you think of it ahead of time, you can use a sharp knife and take just the peel off the fruit, leaving behind the white pith. I’ve found you can still juice them quite easily as long as you leave lots of pith behind. I’m not sure that you want to put the pith and all the fruit remnants in with the vinegar, I don’t know how that would affect things. Mandies I just peel and put in the jar, as the pith is thin. I keep the lid on. In Qld I used to be able to get white vinegar in a 4 litre bottle, but here in SA 2l is as big as I’ve found.
