Detoxify Your Body With Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar

Did you know that Apple Cider Vinegar that we all have in our kitchens has the ability to detoxify and cleanse our bodies? It also improves blood circulation, and supplies the organism with minerals and vitamins. Apple Cider Vinegar is particularly valuable when combined with honey.

Here are some easy to follow recipes including Apple Cider Vinegar that will help detoxify your body.
  • Half an hour before each meal (three times a day) drink 1 cup of water with 1 tablespoon natural Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 tbsp honey.
  • Boost the health of the whole family with a sweet-and-sour salad dressing. Mix 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup corn oil and 1/2 cup honey and pour over your salad.
  • Detoxify your body by drinking 1 cup of water with 1 tablespoon vinegar every morning.
It would be best, of course if you prepare your Apple Cider Vinegar at home. Here is the recipe my grandma has been following for years.

Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar

11 lb (5 kg) ripe apples
0.55 lb (250 g) boiled water
0.44 lb (200 g) honey

Finely grate 5 kg ripe apples with the peels. Fill 1/4 of a 10-liter bottle with boiled and cooled water. Add the grated apples and 200 grams of honey. Close the bottle and shake well, then loosen the cap to allow air inside. Don't fill the bottle to the top and leave some space to prevent the content from overflowing during the fermentation process, which should take about 40 days. When the fruit settles at the bottom, strain through a fine gauze. Leave the vinegar for another 40 days to rest and settle. Finish the process by straining one last time and pour your homemade Apple Cider Vinegar into bottles.
