>What is the ratio of honey to vinegar and how much water? Would someone please post the formula (errr....recipe)?

The basic one-sitting drink recipe (not the syrup) is one teaspoon of vinegar, one teaspoon of honey, and a full glass of water. But you may need to adjust this to taste. You can also try it in warm water instead of cool.

Or mix a tablespoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of olive oil with a small amount of clover honey and drip over a single small salad.

Or mix a ¼ cup vinegar, ¼ cup corn oil, and ⅛ cup honey to be served with the evening meal for everyone's salad.

I'm sure there are many other recipes, you get the idea, if you like it, try experimenting and coming up with what is palatable to you.

>> Apple cider vinegar destroys bacteria in your digestive tract, helps the kidneys and bladder, helps in weight loss, chronic fatigue, chronic headache, high blood pressure, dizziness, sore throat, absorbs mucous. It's considered a cure-all in some places.

Try this... cider vinegar and honey in equal amounts... add a heaping tablespoon to 8 ounces of water.

My grandmother always made what we called "vinegar, honey & water". She mixed apple vinegar, honey and water and chilled it, although I like it even warm. We craved it as kids and I still make it.

I read about honegar in a book about witchcraft many years later and noticed that it was exactly the same recipe.

Also note: my grandmother will turn 95 years old next year.

Another note on vinegar preparations-- early Americans drank them much the way we drink lemonade-- for a pleasant cool drink on a hot day.

One tea spoon of cidar vinegar per one glass of water. In the morning drink slowly 1 hour before mill. Wash mouth after with clear water to save teeth.


For those of you who asked, I just got this recipe from someone. I don't hink she'll mind my sharing.

(I'm going from memory here, so bear with me)

in a pitcher, mix water and AC vinegar about 50/50 (really strong, but I like it that way, you may want less) and add about ¼ to ½ cup honey while stirring constantly. put it in the fridge and wait awhile for honey to disolve, restir, test, and serve!!

This is the recipe I have recommended for years. Everyone who has used this drink reports different results; the best reason I can determine is their state of health before using Honeygar:

Recipe for Honeygar:
Place equal amounts of raw unfiltered honey and apple cider vinegar (about one tablespoon each) into an 8 ounce glass of water that is just warm enough to melt the honey. Stir until clear and drink immediately. Do not take with anything else in your stomach, i.e., about ½ hour before a meal or 2 hours after.

As a cleanser, take three times a day for a week. But be forewarned: If your system is full of toxins from smoking, alcohol, etc., you will spend a lot of time in the bathroom. In the case of one of my clients, he was also physically ill with nausea and vomiting -- but he stuck with it and reported that he never felt better in his life than he did after completing the treatment. In his case, he had used alcohol and tobacco to excess for years.

When first used, it acts on the system as both a diuretic and a laxative. It can be used three times a day (as above) as a detoxifier, then I recommend taking it daily for maintenance.
