Recipe: Life Chef's Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic

This recipe was recently featured on March 13 at Henry County. I had to concoct a version on the spot using organic light brown sugar instead of honey, but those guys were game to try it. Here's a milder version of the tonic good for daily use.

Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp honey
6 oz filtered water
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

Stir and drink daily.

For more information about organic, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar and it's curative properties visit the Bragg website which has an extensive Q&A on ACV, or the Earth Clinic's informative article about ACV.

Note: if you can see through your apple cider vinegar, its not the right stuff for the "tonic". The unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar is cloudy, or has sediment at the bottom, which is where all the "good stuff is." As with all "natural remedies" there are as many articles that support the health benefits of ACV as there are those that denounce the same benefits. You be the judge and share your thoughts.

WOOHOO! Hey, this is the same tonic I drink. It's nasty as all get out but my fybro symptoms are much more managable when I drink this for a few days. (:
