  • 1⁄2 cup fresh grated ginger root
  • 1⁄2 cup fresh grated horseradish root
  • 1 medium onion
  • 10 cloves garlic, crushed or chopped
  • 2 cayenne peppers, chopped
  • 1 lemon, chopped
  • Several sprigs fresh rosemary (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh turmeric (optional)
  • 1 orange, chopped (optional)
  • Unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
  • 1⁄4 cup raw local honey, or to taste


  • 1. Combine all of the ingredients except honey and apple cider vinegar, and place in a quart-sized Mason jar. 
    2. Cover all ingredients with vinegar. Use a piece of natural parchment paper or wax paper under the lid to keep the vinegar from touching the metal, and affix lid. Place in a cool, dark place for 3 to 4 weeks, shaking daily. 
    3. Strain through cheesecloth. Add 1⁄4 cup of honey and stir until incorporated. Taste and add honey as needed to reach desired sweetness.
