    BecR's Note:

    Looking for a delicious, inexpensive way to boost your mineral intake? Try making some herbal vinegars. While minerals like calcium are not easily extracted in water, they dissolve quite easily into vinegar. For centuries, wise women have used apple cider vinegar combined with mineral-rich herbs, in place of calcium supplements to help build stronger bones. (It is said that a tablespoon of herbal infused vinegar has as much calcium as a glass of milk!). "Adding vinegar to your food actually helps build bones because it frees up minerals from the vegetables you eat. Adding a splash of vinegar to cooked greens is a classic trick of old ladies who want to be spry and flexible when they're ancient old ladies. In fact, a spoonful of vinegar on your broccoli or kale or dandelion greens increases the calcium you get by one-third." -- Susun Weed

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 10

    Yield:

    quart

    Units: US | Metric

    • fresh organic dandelion greens (see DANDELION info, below)
    • apple cider vinegar, at room temperature
    • 1 glass mason jar

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fill a glass jar with your choice of fresh herbs. To get the most nutrients from your herbs, chop them into small pieces first. It is crucial to completely fill your jar with herbs. I like to use single herbs at a time, leaves, roots & flowers. Some people like to combine several herbs.
    2. 2
      You can use fresh thyme, oregano, rosemary or dill to make a savory vinegar that's very tasty in salad dressings or marinades. -Or- fresh nettle, chicory, burdock, mustard greens, kale, lambs quarters etc. (or dandelion greens!) will be more nutritive and tonic. Experiment with single herbs at a time to find your favorite!
    3. 3
      Pour room-temperature apple cider vinegar over the herbs until it is full to the top. Cover your jar with a plastic screw-on lid. Don't use metal lids because they react to the vinegar in a nasty way! Alternatively, you can use several layers of plastic or wax paper held on with a rubber band, or even a cork if it fits tightly enough. If you use unpasteurized vinegar you may get a film that forms at the top of what is called, 'the mother'. Simply skim it off when you decant.
    4. 4
      Label your vinegar with the date and the type of herbs you used.
    5. 5
      Place jar in a dark place like a kitchen cupboard or pantry shelf for 6 - 8 weeks.
    6. 6
      Strain out the herbs and bottle your vinegar. (Again, avoid metal lids.).
    7. 7
      Some people like to eat the 'pickled' herbs rather than discard them. Decide for yourself.
    8. 8

      Herbal Remedies DANDELION: The leaves of the dandelion plant are a powerful diuretic. The roots are a blood purifier which helps remove toxins from the liver and kidneys. Because it is high in vitamins and iron, this herb is useful for treating anemia. It's diuretic properties make it a useful treatment for bladder infections. A bitter, appetite stimulant, this herb increases production of bile to help relieve constipation, gallstones, hemorrhoids and IBS. The root of this herb is often combined with milk thistle in a tincture form for stimulating and detoxifying the liver. The flowers contain a substance called helenin as well as vitamins A and B-2 (riboflavin), which may be helpful in treating night vision problems. In the spring dandelion leaves and roots produce mannitol, a substance used in the treatment of hypertension and a weak heart. herbalremedies.com.
