Maybe someone could try to make it with unsold honey .

I wonder what Cuban honey is . Was honey imported into NZ once .

They probably used Manuka honey to make mead and vinegar , seeing how it was not fit for human consumption.

 

That’s a good point.

I wonder how much Manuka honey you need now to call your vinegar ‘manuka vinegar’.

I do not think there is a test yet . You could probably get away with very little.

I would say there would be a good strong market for Manuka vinegar .

Method from a 1900 edition of the New Zealand Farmer Bee and Poultry Journal.

 

Has anyone tasted anything like this before?

Any honey for which there is no market would work.  Willow dew honey.  Might have to make some pickled walnuts in willow dew honey vinegar.  Sounds exotic could make a handsome profit with those walnuts that are nasty to crackout and that nasty end of season willow dew???

It's still a food isn't it, so at least NP1 with all the yadayadayada.......to produce and sell the stuff

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll  just add it to my NP1a quick email with a food plan to the council.  Of more concern is the need to get the acetic acid levels up to 4.5. % to keep it within safe pickling guidelines, quite difficult when just using honey and water apparently. ?

Easy to add a bit

Having made my own vinegar honey vinegar  "otherwise known as Honeygar"is definitely an option. Yes the acidic reading needs to be above 4.5% or the produce you pickle will go off quickly. Honey creates massive " Mothers" Mine are between 1 & 2 cm thick.

Take care to sterilize the vinegar to destroy any microbes etc before using.
