Can I Use Loquat Fruit to Make Vinegar?

Q: Can I use loquat fruit to make vinegar? I have read you can use peaches and apricots, but I’m not sure about loquats. I have a huge 70- to 80-year-old tree in my front yard and need a few ideas on how to use this fruit.

Editor: There are quite a few things you can do with loquats — many of which we’ve discussed here — but making vinegar hasn’t made it onto the list. If you do try it, the seeds seem to be an integral part, which means you’ll have to use the fleshy part of the fruit. It’s great in chutney, jams, and in a cocktail!

Kitchn readers, have you ever make loquat vinegar?
