tonic :: the fire water
but now to the other thing, i'm convinced it will help me to stay healthy. i have heard and seen and tasted this kind of "fire water" as i call the tonic, but forgotten about all of it. until a week ago i stumbled across it on a healthy living blog.
there was no holding back, i had to start a good portion of this tonic and so it is all grated and soaking in apple vinegar for the next 10 days.
the recipe calls for ginger, horseradish, garlic, onion, red hot peppers and turmeric (that the latter picture, i absolutely love the color of the turmeric!), all chopped up and put into a jar, fill it up with apple vinegar and let it steep in the fridge.
the straining and "drinking", it will be more a brave moment of taking a spoon full.... will start in a week.
