She not only teaches us the history, science, and technique of fermented foods but also manages to make it extra-enchanting, through the bold exploration of flavors on the edge of our consciousness. This book will teach you how to make quality vinegar more thoroughly than almost any modern book on the market, but it will also fill you with creative wonder about an ingredient you may have once taken completely for granted.”— Meredith Leigh, author of The Ethical Meat Handbook and Pure Charcuterie“To say that Homebrewed Vinegar is a fantastically researched, mind-blowingly comprehensive, and very approachable book is an understatement. Shockey does it again with this book, as she has with her previous ones, by showing you all the ins and outs of making vinegar. With her as your guide, you’ll be able to make any vinegar that your mind can dream up. She will entangle you with her love of fermentation and inspire you to share that love with others.

She makes acidity accessible to all, at home and abroad.”— Michael Harlan Turkell, award-winning food photographer, author of ACID TRIP: Travels in the World of Vinegar, and host of Heritage Radio Network’s The Food Seen and Food52’s Burnt Toast podcasts“I really like Kirsten Shockey’s latest book on brewing vinegar at home—a lot.

Kirsten Shockey transforms a wide range ofingredients into a unique reflection of time and terroir using fruits and ciders, seasonally playful flower blossoms, and even jewel-hued purple sweet potatoes.
