Cure What Ails Ya Master Tonic

Cure What Ails Ya Master Tonic

This is a take on Master Tonic or Fire Cider, a popular folk remedy. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties.

You can drink 1-2 ounces a day, or mix with water or seltzer water. You can also use in place of vinegar in recipes, such as a vinaigrette.

Add different herbs or turmeric for additional health benefits, or use our lemon ginger infused honey to simplify the recipe.

We’ve tried this, and one way or another, I think it will put you out of your misery. CHEERS!

1/2 cup thinly sliced ginger
1/2 cup diced horse radish
1 head garlic, smashed and peeled
3 sprigs rosemary or thyme
2 jalapeño peppers
1 teaspoon black pepper corns
1/2 small onion chopped
1 lemon cut in 1.5” chunks
1/2 orange cut in 1.5” chunks
2 cups + apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup BLB raw honey
Yields approx. 2 cups.

Pack first 9 ingredients in jar and cover with apple cider vinegar. (You might need a little more than 2 cups.) Cover with cheesecloth or parchment paper between jar and lid to prevent corrosion. Store in a cool dark place, shaking every other day for 21 days. Strain through cheesecloth. Discard solids and add raw honey. For additional health benefits, mix 1 tablespoon of ground turmeric with the raw honey before you add it to the vinegar.

Peanut Butter and Honey Energy Bars

These no-bake bars are a delicious gooey honey treat. I recommend wrapping them individually with wax paper. This recipe is based on a granola bar we found at a mom and pop coffee shop while travelling.
You can make them gluten and dairy free by using gf oats, gf crispy rice, and dairy free chocolate chips.
This recipe makes approximately 14 bars.

1 1/2 cups Peanut Butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup raw or infused BLB honey

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 cups old fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal

1/4 cup chopped dried fruit
(raisins, craisins, dried apricots, dried cherries)

1/2 cup chopped nuts

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
(Use Enjoy Life Brand for dairy free bars.)

Chop dried fruit and nuts.

Soften peanut butter in microwave.

Add vanilla, honey, and brown sugar to softened peanut butter.

Add oats and crispy rice. Stir until combined. (I used crystalized honey and had to mix with my hands, as it was really solid.)

Stir in chopped fruit, nuts, and chocolate chips.

Press into 9×13 greased pan and allow to cool.

Cut into bars and wrap with waxed paper.
