Use this simple recipe during cold and flu season to boost your immune system, open up a stuffy head, or just to warm up from the inside out.
4 or more cloves of garlic, press, mash, or finely chop and set aside for 10 minutes.
To a ½ gallon jar add
2 cups honey (local wildflower if available)
2 cups apple cider vinegar (unfiltered if available)
1 large ginger root, grated or finely chopped
1 horseradish root, grated or finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
½ tsp cayenne pepper
Chopped, set aside garlic.
Give the jar a good swirl, and again every day. Leave in a warm place for 2-4 weeks. Use a plastic lid or some plastic wrap between the jar and metal lid, as the vinegar will corrode the metal.
Take a Tablespoon (or more) every day as an immune booster, straight up or in hot water for tea. And don’t let the lack of fresh horseradish stop you from preparing, just leave out or add later. Disclaimer – don’t use with a fever condition.
