Spicy "Immunity" Oxymel Recipe!
Stay healthy all season long with this immune-boosting oxymel
This is one of my favorite recipe's, similar to fire cider, but not as harsh! In my home we start taking two tablespoons morning & night at the start of the cold season and stay healthy all along! You can add a spoonful to warm water & lemon or use it as a dressing! It's so tasty. Feel free to adjust the ingredients to your liking.
4-6 Cayenne peppers (less for fresh or more for dried)
1 whole fresh head garlic (smashed & roughly chopped)
1/4 cup fresh ginger (grated or chopped)
1 medium white (or purple) onion (chopped)
32 ounce mason jar with lid
About 2 Cups Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (Braggs is my favorite & very accessible)
About 2 cups of Local Raw Honey
* Oxymel is 1:1 ratio of AVC to Honey.
Gently warm ACV on very low heat on the stove. You want it to be just warm.
Add all the ingredients into clean mason jar.
Pour honey over and fill about half way.
Add in the ACV, stir with a wooden spoon, screw on lid & shake gently.
Store in a cool, dark place, giving a gentle shake every few days, for 2-4 weeks then strain & enjoy! * I always err on the longer side for maximum potency.
* You should use a non-metal lid or place a piece of parchment paper in between to prevent oxidization.
* A little trick is to use a honey jar! I hate to waste all that good honey that gets left on the sides of the jar so i will either make a nice herbal water infusion in the jar or use it to make an oxymel!
