DIY: Herbal Vinegar

In the wise words of one of our favorite herbalists, Susan Weed, "herbal Vinegars are an unstoppable combination: they marry the healing properties of apple cider vinegar with the nutritional genius of plants."

She continues to highlight how herbal vinegars are "tasty medicine, enriching and enlivening our food, while building health from the inside out. Vinegar is unique in its ability to draw minerals out of plants. The addition of vinegar to cooked greens magnifies the minerals available to our bodies. And the addition of mineral-rich medicinal vinegar to our diet magnifies health by making high-quality minerals available."

DIY Herbal Vinegar with our Iron Maiden, Herbal Wellness Tea: 

1. Fill any size jar with Iron Maiden. "For best results and highest mineral content, be sure the jar is well filled.

2. Pour room-temperature apple cider vinegar into the jar until it is full.  Cover jar: A plastic screw-on lid, several layers of plastic or wax paper held on with a rubber band, or a cork are the best covers.  Avoid metal lids—or protect them well with plastic—as vinegar will corrode them.

3. Label and date the jar. Put it someplace away from direct sunlight, though it doesn't have to be in the dark, and someplace that isn't too hot, but not too cold either.

4. Your vinegar will be ready in six weeks. You can decant your vinegar into a beautiful serving container, or use it right from the jar you made it in."
