Orange vinegar question

I just started making some of my own orange vinegar yesterday. Quick question: do you have to strain the vinegar (cheesecloth) before you're ready to use it? I'm assuming you do since the batch I'm making already has little bits of orange pulp in it.

If I don't have cheesecloth, can I use a coffee filter??

Re: Orange vinegar question

  • I thought you were just supposed to use the peel?
  • I did, but there are still little bits of orange floating around. I mean, tiny little bits, but enough to make me think it would interfere with cleaning.
  • Yes, you will need to strain it.    I use a coffee filter inside of a mesh strainer with a jar underneath.    I'm thinking about using my permanent coffee filter (the gold metal mesh kind) next time.  It's stable, so I wouldn't have to use the strainer, I could just set it on top of the jar.  

    You do just use the peels, but you will still need to strain it.   There are little bits of pulp left on the peel that end up floating in the vinegar.
