Have Apple Cider Vinegar? 6 Interesting Recipes To Try

Consumed with warm water, apple cider vinegar is a well-known morning detox drink that has been around for centuries. Used in cooking and as a homemade remedy for several health problems, it is very popular across the world. ACV is basically a vinegar which is made from fermented apple juice.  

In the fermentation process, the sugars are converted to alcohol, and then the bacteria turn the alcohol into acetic acid, giving the liquid its sour taste.
