Apple Cider Vinegar recipes

When I posted about the Health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar I also promised to share a few recipes.
Chamomile Tincture Kit

Did you know that you can make your own herbal remedy Tinctures using ACV?  YES!  The tincture has a shorter shelf-live than using alcohol as a menstruum but it's great for people who avoid alcohol or for children.
Chamomile tincture is great for tummy aches and trouble sleeping!

Before I forget...Be sure to stop by  
The Self Sufficient HomeAcre and Black Fox Homestead this Monday (tomorrow) for a fantastic giveaway from Mary's Heirloom Seeds! 

On to the recipes!
My absolute favorite is Apple Cider Viniagrette dressing.  Delicious!
You can also drink different concoctions.  Check these out!

ACV drink

2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1-2 cups water


1. Boil the water in a jug.
2. While this is boiling, add the first two ingredients to a mug.
3. Pour the water into the mug to fill it, and stir until disolved.
Drink up! Great in winter. Makes 1 mugful as a serving.

The recipe below is one of my favorites.  It's nice and sweet so the APC is disguised.  I don't drink the very often because of the juice but it's nice on a hot sunny day out in the garden.

Sweetened ACV Elixer

1 1/2 cup of cold filtered water

2 tbs of apple or grape juice

2 tbs of raw apple cider vineger
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of stevia (powdered) if using liquid you only need a few drops.
Place all the ingredients together in a glass and stir until it is all mixed together. You can add a little ice if you like, and drink!

I know how good this is for you, and have some, but I must admit I am a little squeamish about taking it due to the taste. Think I will use one of your recipes, thanks.
