Great Way to Get ACV!

Put some ACV in a jar, add some Torani syrup - the real kind, with actual sugar (I love raspberry) - put the lid on loosely and set it on the counter for a day or 6. The mother in the vinegar will ferment the sugar in the syrup. Add water to taste (I like mine strong) put it in a bottle in the fridge and take a slug of it whenever you want a little zing! It's rich and will be sour, depending on how sour you let it get on the counter, but if it's too sour, you can just add some honey but it won't take much because, although it's sour, it's a yummy sour!

Mine is actually apple raspberry vinegar because I like it strong, sour-wise. I cut it half and half with water and by the end of the week, it's pretty much apple, raspberry water kefir. Pretty strong.

I'm not sure where this should be added but... normally I have awful stomach pain from ACV or apples in general. I have IBS and I really don't know what it is that does it as I seem to be able to have both malic and acetic acid with no issues.

Anyway... for some reason when I mix the ACV into (diluted) orange squash as opposed to water, I get no discomfort at all. Isn't that bizarre? It's like a miracle!

I've tried I think 3 different oranges squashes now (Asda, Kia-Ora and Robinson's) and all three work. Maybe it's the orange juice in them... so I want to try that next.

Anyway... it just works so well that I wanted to let other people know, in case anyone else has a digestive reaction to ACV.

All the best, everyone! :)

Salt N Vinegar Recipe
Posted by Esther (Oregon) on 06/19/2020

This is NOT a new cure, but I've found out that many people, like me, can't stomach taking their nasty tasting dose of apple cider vinegar. I tried everything, but the only thing that worked was to use salty water. I stir in salt to taste in water (maybe 1/2 cup or more) until it dissolves, then add the ACV. I look forward to taking it now, it's tasty that way.

My Oxymel recipe, half local organic honey, half raw ACV, leave for at least 2 weeks, turning over each day, the thickness of the honey disperses into the vinegar until it is fluid. I add rosehips for vitamin C, you could use Hibiscus, Hawthorn, thyme, oregano, etc.

Dose is one tablespoon, for colds etc. I plan to take every 4 hours but recovery is usually quick and we don't get past two doses. It is delicious, neat or added to herb tea. So kids don't mind it. You can strain out the rosehips, I choose not to, when one gets uncovered I simply add to tea.

I do have a slight arthritic knee and have taken ACV over a number of years, and it does seem as though it has kept symptoms from worsening. However, I've never enjoyed taking the ACV until quite recently. This is how I make it more acceptable. I cut up a small sweet apple such as Gala (complete with pips and core), two tablespoonsful of ACV with the mother, 1/4 teaspoonful of Bicarbonate of Soda, and approximately 80 - 100 ml of water, and blitz the lot in my smoothie maker. The result is a lovely apple juice drink, sweet yet slightly tart.

I know look forward to having the ACV instead of thinking of it as a chore to be gone through.

I have varicose veins in my left leg and have been trying to figure out how to get rid of them. Does Apple Cider Vinegar get rid of them? I'm also trying to loose my baby fat. How accurate does Apple Cider Vinegar work for that? I tried cooking with it and it made me feel sick and weak for 5 days.

EC: Hello, please read the ACV feedback on our varicose veins page here: https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/varicose-vein-treatment-natural-remedies.html

The recipe that I like using ACV is 2 TBSP ACV, 1 TBSP organic lemon juice. 1 TBSP raw unfiltered honey, 1/4 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon and a pinch of baking soda in 1 cup filtered water. Put in a blender give it a whirl to blend all ingredients and pour it on ice. ENJOY!

if you are just drinking Heinz apple cider vinegar it is not doing the same thing as if you are using the organic, raw vinegar with the active mother in it.

*One to two bags of Instant Korean Ginseng Tea (preferably certified as made in Korea)
*1 to 2 tsps of organic ACV
*1 to 2 tsps of Manuka (UMF 20+) Honey

Mix all in an eight to ten oz of hot water. Serves as a great and invigorating cup of tea. Because I my body does not process oxalate well and because I love what Korean Ginseng does to my skin and energy level, I researched only to find that ACV reduces the oxalate potency and therefore, it's easy on my kidneys. Plus, there are tons of benefits from the Manuka Honey. Enjoy!

What is b.s.m? I am not familiar with this. Thanks for your reply.

I add ACV (1 tbsp) to Lemon and Ginger Herbal tea + 1 tsp clear honey. It is a lovely drink and the only way I can take ACV.

Posted by Loria (Al) on 08/31/2016

I stirred about 1 TBS of ACV to my serving of ranch dressing today. It made the dressing taste similar to Blue Cheese salad dressing. Much more palatable than water/acv shots I've been taking :)

Dear Oby,

It sounds like your child may have some developmental delays. Do you have a trusted healthcare provider? There are likely many things you can do at home to work with her and help her physical and speech development.

If your child's delays are caused by health problems, then there may be some natural remedies you could try.

Is your child healthy otherwise?

I would not heat ACV as it most likely kills the healthy bacteria that helps heal us. :/

Posted by Fran (Tx., US) on 02/26/2015

Doesn't the boiling also destroy the healthy properties of the honey?

Posted by Julie (Texas) on 01/11/2015

You can boil it. It doesn't decrease the health benefits. Most vinegar is distilled or boiled as part of the process of making it. You can use it either way! Enjoy your health benefits!

I started drinking ACV for varicose veins about 4 days ago. I mixed it with freshly squeezed orange juice so I can drink it without gagging. The ACV taste is not that strong and I am happy with it.

Posted by Charlotte (Va) on 07/20/2014

I honestly cannot discern from your comment whether or not ACV works for you."NOT nice"-tasting? Or just not good, altogether? If it "does not work" for you, and you are still taking it this way, it could be because the ACV benefits were coming from the acidic properties of the ACV, and you've been neutralizing the acid completely with the baking soda.

A good way to drink Apple Cider Vinegar is to put a capful in a cup of ice tea or in chicken broth heated in a cup..soo good. Also I like molasses on toast or stirred in to a warm drink, it is rich in iron and minerals women need, especially around period time. Iron is not recommended as much for men because of prostate issues. Enjoy.

Here is my daily tonic. 2 tbls of ACV, 4 teaspoons of raw honey preferably from your local beekeeper and 1 tsp of Ceylon cinnamon. I heat up a little water in a coffee cup and put the cinnamon in it and let it steep for 20 minutes. I then pour the cinnamon into my drinking container and add the ACV and honey, stir and fill up the bottle with purified water and drink it 30 minutes before each meal. Amazing health benefits in honey and cinnamon and you won't even taste the ACV...

I love the reader who wrote drink while holding a rabbits foot... sounds like something out of the X-Files. I can see Mulder's face right now.

Posted by Ash (Melbourne, Australia) on 02/08/2014

After reading all the recipes I was just looking for something simple, quick and easy to make without the vinegar taste!

I just put an equal amount of ACV with the remaining honey in the jar shook it up, then added 2 Tablespoons of the mix in a glass of water and stirred. It went down quite well with no horrible taste and only a slight vinegar smell! I was surprised as a first timer and will be taking it this way from now on. Thank you

Karen's ACV Recipe
Posted by Karen S (Calgary, Ab) on 01/24/2014

I have been drinking ACV for about 5 months now and will never go without it again. It has done so much for my energy levels, I can't even believe it!

I cannot stand the flavour, however, so every morning I make my "Health Drink" - which is 1 tbsp ACV; 1 tbsp organic coconut oil; 1 tbsp manuka honey; 1 tsp turmeric; and 4 drops oil of wild oregano". I live in a northern climate, so I have to very extremely gently melt the coconut oil, turmeric and manuka honey in a pot on the stove (no microwaving) and then add the ACV and oil of wild oregano. To this I add my fave fruit juice (currently it is pear/pineapple) and drink it like really fast like a shooter! . This is the only way I can get it down and it really works for me, I don't taste any of it but the fruit juice.

I have not had colds, flus or even a simple runny nose since. My allergies are pretty much in check, flatulence and digestive upset are a thing of the past and I never even get headaches anymore.

This site has given me a quality of life I haven't seen in 20+ years. Thank you Earth Clinic and all it's lovely posters!! Thank you!

Apple Cider Vinegar and Natural Sweeteners

Without a problem, you can take ACV with jaggery, it is more healthy. Chromium in Jaggery will regulate sugar as well. If you could find jaggery powder without sulphites it is even great. Good Health

I drink it with Spicy V8.

Posted by Angie (Brunson, Sc, Us) on 12/30/2012

I've just started using ACV and I love love love it. I've noticed that a lot of people say it is nasty. I read and therefore have been mixing the following and it taste great!

8 oz. Of distilled water
2 tsp. of ACV
4 to 5 drops of liquid Stevia

I've only been doing it for a couple of days and the only thing I've noticed is that I actually crave the drink now. I have suffered with sinus problems my ENTIRE life!!!! I am praying that this brings relief. I have taken so so many antibotics only for it to come right back as soon as I am off them. I'm so excited to see all the comments and benefits of this WONDERFUL juice!
