Donya Coward. Beautiful design and needlework. " MAGPIE" . A bird I fell in love with while visiting Ireland. Know very little about them , other then I was surprised they were a bit bigger then birds that are indigenous to birds of Eastern USA. Wanted to name my pool house " Magpie Manor" ... My husband told me " No more wine for you!"
Do you see it? That slimy red substance at the top of this ceramic jar is called a mother of vinegar, or vinegar mother. It's basically a combination of cellulose and acetic acid bacteria that forms on fermenting alcoholic liquids. As the name implies, a mother of vinegar makes vinegar!
