When I say "cider vinegar" I don't mean the kind you buy in the grocery store, but the kind in the health food store. It is the one with the "mother" in it--I use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. The "mother" is the goodness of the apple and you can see it in the bottle--just shake the bottle and it gets all mixed in. Apple Cider Vinegar is wonderful for you. It was used in New England years ago as a cure-all for everything. The Bragg's vinegar can be used as you would use any vinegar, but has a tad less bite than regular kind--it is very good. This tea is refreshing and you will find that you want to have a cup. My mom and I drink this. My mother's aunt drank this every day of her life. Hummmmm.....
- Boil some water.
- Put the vinegar and honey in a pretty mug.
- Pour the boiling water over it and dissolve the honey.
- Drink and enjoy.
We have quite a bit in common. My son lives by this stuff. He says it helps his acne quite a bit and if we run out he starts breaking out worse. Did you know apple cider vinegar was one of the ingredients in the concoction the four thieves used to stay off the Bubonic plague? My elderly neighbor drank this three times a day and lost all the arthritic calcium knots on her knuckles that crippled her hands. Also, my son drank this while us three girls suffered the H1N1 flu this year. He got a fever one day and it went away and never came back. I could go on and on...
I actually like the taste of this warm drink. I can't wait to see if it helps any "challenges" that my body has. I found the "Braggs" brand of Apple Cider in the Health Foods part of my regular grocery store, so that was nice I didn't have to make a special trip somewhere for that. Thanks for the recipe!
I started drinking acv and water a couple of months ago, but didn't think of drinking it hot. A friend told us about it's healthy benefits. I get my vinegar from Trader Joes. If you want more info on it and other natural cures go to earthclinic.com, great site. I love the taste of this drink. Thank you
