There’s no time like the present moment to stock up on kitchen medicine cabinet remedies that nourish the immune system, both for prevention and treating symptoms. This apple cider vinegar and honey combination is more like cooking than medicine making.

If you’re cooking along while you listen, you will need the following:

½ cup grated fresh horseradish root, approximately 6-8 inch piece

½ cup chopped onions, (1 medium onion)

¼ cup chopped garlic, (about 10-12 cloves depending on their size)

¼ cup grated fresh ginger, (about a 4-6 inch piece)

Chopped fresh or dried chili pepper or ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

32 ounces organic apple cider vinegar

½ cup honey

Equipment: 1 quart Mason jar with lid; cutting board, sharp knife, hand grater, wax paper
