Great for what ails you, I mean really, what malady could survive a mixture of garlic, jalapeno peppers, horseradish, onions, ginger, cinnamon, star anise honey, and vinegar.
All you need to do is peel the garlic and cut the ginger, onion, and peppers into chunks, no need to peel the ginger.
After cutting off a 1 1/2-ounce chunk of horseradish, I chunked up the rest of the root, vacuum-sealed it, and put it into the freezer.
Someday I'll figure out what to do with the rest of the $10.00 piece of root.
At the time I was so happy to find fresh horseradish I didn't even look at the price per lb. I sure noticed it when I went to check out and it rang up at $10.00 YIKES!!! LOL, this will probably last me a lifetime.
Now, unlike me, I know you are better about reading a recipe all the way through first, and you'll know that all the ingredients except the honey are packed into the jar with the vinegar and that the honey isn't added until the "brewing" time is up.
Then you top it all off with the vinegar seal the jar then store it at room temperature away from direct sunlight,
When I feel a cold or whatever coming on, I put a shot glass next to the bottle of cider and take a few shots of it throughout the day, about 1-2 tablespoons at a time. If it's too strong for your tastes it can be diluted in a glass of water.
Don't do what I did and wait too long to make your next batch, it has to "brew" for at least a month first.
