I am not including the one with the mother. I saw this on the tv show "How it is Made", according to the show absolutely no apples!"

I am based in Kenya and I often buy my apple cider vinegar at a local supermarket call Nakumatt or UCHUMI and it is bottle by wescobee ltd 99 beechboro rd bayswater western Australia H/579. They have apple cider vinegar & honey and apple cider vinegar only. We would also like to know if the pure is the best or the one mix with honey?
Hope the information will help. Thanks and best regards
11/13/2011: Samthaha from Singapore replies: "Apple Vinegar with honey has its limitations on application, be it for your salad dressing or marinating meat products. We are bottlers of pure Green Apple Vinegar (Not distilled vinegar or apple cider) in Singapore under the registered brand "AppleTalk". Welcome enquiries at samthaha(at)hotmail.com

12/10/2011: Moiz from Mombasa, Kenya: "Cannot get in Mombasa Kenya. How do we lay our hands on this product? Would also be interested in purchasing/ importing if this is of interest to you .
12/11/2011: Vivan from Santa Ana, California, Usa replies: "Hi Moiz, I just learn "how to made ACV at home" from a friend of mine
-2 liter of water (boiled and let cool)
-1 kg of apple (1/2 kg of green apple and haft of the red one
Clean and cut all apples into small pieces. Use the blender to chop them with the above water. Put them into the glass jar and close the lid. Ready to use after a month."
01/13/2013: Tony Tan from Singapore replies: "Most of the ACV in the supermarket shelves is basic table vinegar and have less "therapeutic value". Either they are distilled, synthetic, flavoured, or with GMO apples. However, I lately discovered this brand - "AppleTalk" which is highly effective and is tested and registered as a health supplement. It is pure 100% apple juice with no colouring. They dont use misleading statements/claims with marketing jargon. The processing/fermenting is different and is not alcoholic. The manufacturer is one S. A. M. Thaha & Co and they have a facebook presence which details the products features and benefits. Give it a try and you will not regret using this natural apple vinegar."
02/04/2013: Lees from Malaysia, Gombak replies: "Thank you Vivan for your valuable information. but I would be gratefull if you inform me, the temperature of the place which I have to keep glass jar. Less"
05/09/2011: Ian from Dennington, Victoria, Australia: "Hello, thanks for the ACV recipe. My question is: You can buy acv's with the 'mother' intact like _____'s or Melrose here in Australia. It is always advised by those who are in the know to buy only acv's with the mother in it. Why do we need then to take the mother out of this recipe?? Thanks, Ian"Replies
05/09/2011: Debbie from Melbourne, Australia replies: "Ian, GoVita have the ACV with the mother. Here is a list of their stores in Vic.
05/09/2011: Debbie from Melbourne, Australia replies: "You don't take the mother out of the ACV Ian, you drink it. It would be pointless to take it out."
10/25/2008: Isabella from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia : "Hi, Can anyone please tell me where in Melbourne, Australia I can buy organic apple cider vinegar in bulk sizes, ie. at least 15 litres? I'm planning to use it regularly on my six-year-old black Lab, "Star" who has severe Atopic Dermatitis. Also, not many people here seem to have mentioned whether they use organic or standard apple cider vinegar...I'd be interested to know which works best.
In Love, Peace, and Harmony,
Isabella (and Star)"
[YEA] 01/15/2009: Sue from Melbourne, Vic replies: "Hi Isabella, I buy ACV direct from the Apple Orchard in Bacchus Marsh. It's very inexpensive (less than $2 per litre) and you need to take your own containers for them to fill. Cheers, Sue."
[YEA] 01/16/2009: Louise from Ocean Grove, VIC Australia replies: "To Isabella of Melbourne, I can't give you the name of a particular supplier as I don't buy it in bulk, but I do know that horse owners buy acv in bulk. So check out horse feed stores and if you can't find any, ring your vet and ask where you would be able to get horse feed in your area."
07/31/2010: Wendy from Melbourne, Australia replies: "I found Apple Cider Venegar in Windsor, Chapel St near Prahran Market, remember not in the market area, is one of the shop which selling natural/organic stuff. They place the Apple Cider Vinegar in front of the shop, quite easy to spot!!"

01/21/2011: Janice from Pr, Brazil: "Hello, I am an American currently living in Brazil and believe I am suffering from acid reflux. Where could I find Apple Cider Vinegar? I went to the local super market and they had "Apple Vinegar", not quite sure it's the same thing. Thanks! "Replies
10/25/2011: Hab Bakar from Singapore replies: "Apple Vinegar is safe for Muslims. Apple Cider is alcoholic. Real apple vinegar comes in small bottles of 300 to 1ml packagings and not in litres/barrels to bathe horses and cats."
03/23/2012: Karenina67 from Colina, Sp, Brazil replies: "To Janice, PR in Brazil: You might want to check out the brand Senhor Viccino (http://www.senhorviccino.com.br/)... Apple vinegar is not really the same, as even the best brands (such as Castelo) are filtered (what takes out its 'mother of vinegar' which is exactly what we're looking for) and include preservatives. They mention Dr. Jarvis, from Vermont, on the information included on the site, so I guess they follow his guidelines for their products."
