Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place onion, garlic, ginger, and echinacea root, organge, and jalapeño if using in a quart size mason jar.
  • Add enough apple cider vinegar to cover the ingredients.
  • Cap tightly and leave in the jar for 2-3 weeks, preferably in a sunny or slightly warm place.
  • After 2-3 weeks, strain and discard the herbs.
  • After straining, measure the apple cider vinegar left and mix it with an equal amount of raw honey and add the cayenne pepper.
  • Store in the refrigerator and take 1 teaspoon as needed daily or when illness strikes. I’ve taken as much as 1 teaspoon an hour during illness until I felt better.

Notes

Don't worry about the garlic turning green -- it's a normal reaction for garlic immersed in an acid.
