Vinegar of the Four Thieves, which we covered a few years ago in this blog. This is a pared down version but still just as healthy for winter time ills. (And according to my children - much more palatable!) It is very easy to make with Apple Cider vinegar, onion, horseradish, garlic, ginger and a pinch of cayenne. Simply peel and chunk the horseradish, garlic, and ginger and add them to a wide mouth jar with a pinch of cayenne. It needs to be full but not packed tight. Pour in the cider vinegar and let rest for a month. Strain and add honey to taste. To this size jar we added about a generous 1/4 C of honey. Take 1 teaspoon every 1/2 hour during your fight with illness.
