Ingredients


2 cup Apple cider vinegar (unpasteurized)
8 tbsp Horseradish root (about 1/2 cup; grated or chopped )
1/4 cup minced Ginger root
1/2 cup Garlic (crushed cloves)
1/2 cup White onion (chopped)
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper (or to taste – you want it HOT but not burning!))
2 whole lemon(s) Lemon juice
2 whole lemon(s) Lemon peel (zest)
5 sprig Rosemary, fresh (or 10 Kawakawa leaves (if you can find it))
1/2 bunch Thyme, fresh (a handful)
1/4 cup Honey, raw

Instructions


  1. Place the horseradish, ginger, garlic, onion, lemon juice and zest, rosemary leaves and thyme in a sterilised 1 litre glass jar. Cover with apple cider vinegar.
  2. Place a piece of baking paper over the mouth of the jar, then screw on the lid tightly. You want to have the baking paper as a barrier, as the apple cider will erode the metal lid.
  3. Shake well. Add the cayenne now and taste – if you love your spices you may want to add a pinch more.
  4. Fasten the lid and let sit out of direct sun for 4 weeks, shaking vigorously once daily.
  5. After 4 weeks, decant the infused vinegar into a new jar, and compost the plant material. Add honey – either the full amount, or to sweeten just to your liking. Shake well.

 

Enjoy a tablespoon daily as a digestive and immune tonic, or use the vinegar to make dressings with extra punch!
