  2. In a bowl, put the flour and make a hole in the middle.

  5. Finally add the vinegar.
  6. If necessary, add more flour to the dough if it still sticks to your hands.

  9. Make a vertical cut right in the center of the rectangle and place the sides through the opening. (Be creative and have fun, create the twist of your choice)
