Flu Season

How has this flu season been treating you?  Most of my co-workers are sick with either the flu or some cold.  Some have been out of work for a week and the others still come to work and try to spread their wealth.  I have tried to avoid all the sick people.  Some of them got sick, better, then sick again.  How is a girl to stay healthy?   Let me tell you what I have done

This is  Master Tonic.  You use onions, garlic, ginger, jalapeno peppers, and apple cider vinegar.  Horseradish can also be added if you like that kind of thing.

I slice everything, use the seeds and pith of the jalapenos, this makes it spicy.  I found a great way to peel garlic,  use the flat side of your knife to flatten the clove this kinda minces it at the same time that you can just let the papery covering fall off.  Use as many items as you want.  Put in a gallon jug, then add the apple cider vinegar to fill up.  Cover with a sealable lid as you need to leave this on the counter for 3 weeks to ferment and each day you need to shake to keep it mixed up. 

master tonicIsn’t it beautiful?  Just think of all the healthy goodness in that jar. 

At the end of three weeks you strain the liquid out and store in the fridge to stop the fermentation process.   You can use all the lovely veggie goodness in soups or stews or maybe even add some tomatoes and a blender and look salsa!

Do you use Master Tonic?
