I've been doing a lot of reading lately on natural herbs and plants and found this recipe. Folks claim that it will heal your body and keep you free of flu, colds, bacterial infections, and cancer. Looking at the ingredients, I do think they are on to something....

Master Tonic

1 part garlic

1 part onion (hot white if possible)

1 part ginger

1 part horseradish

1 part hot peppers (hotter the better)


Dice or chop all ingredients, put in a jar and submerge them in raw apple cider vinegar. Put the jar in a dark place, stirring daily. After two weeks, strain off all the solids and put the liquid in jars. The jars do not need to be refrigerated, just keep in a dark place. Will keep for a long time on the shelf.

Drink a shot once or twice a day - mix in some raw honey if you need help getting it down.

If you peal and clean all the ingredients, you can take the solids and freeze to add to stir fry or soup/broth. If you are just going to mulch the solids, no need to peel the ingredients.

It's also called plague tonic or fire water.......

I made a batch today and made a big mess. I ran everything though my Cuisinart and it diced up pretty well. I pealed everything since I want to put the solids in soup and stir-fry later on.

One thing I did differently is that I added some turmeric root and black pepper to mine. The black pepper helps your body use the turmeric. Warning about the turmeric, you will be dyed bright yellow if you don't wear gloves. I wore gloves, but took them off as I was cleaning up and I still stained my hands bright yellow. Crazy....

I will let you know how it turns out in two weeks.

If you are chopping and dicing hot hot peppers by hand, wear gloves and keep you hands away from your eyes.

Whew - just gave it a daily mixing. It smells like it could take wall paper off walls. lol.... But it does have a nice sweet smell from the ginger. I bet this would make a great base for a salad dressing. I have a feeling that I'm not going to be able to choke it down straight.....

My stomach doesn't like hot stuff. Or ginger. Or peppers. If I did this and drank it I would become a diarrhea firehose.

Kind of like my drunk buddy in Acapulco when he ate one of those bacon wrapped hotdogs street vendors sell.

Boom! Instant colonic. Cures you from both ends at the same time. Maybe it is a miracle tonic after all. :thumbs_up:

Yikes.

Stuff sounds like its from the same age as thinking the plague was caused by not saying enough prayers.

Does it at least taste better than it seems like it would?

What No Oil of Oregano !

I always put four or five drops into any spaghetti, tomato sauce or paste that is going into an Italian dish.

Plus it's like garlic, a lot of natural remedies use Oil of Oregano even in cuts and lesions.

DYODD,

Interesting, we use all that, plus tumeric & some home canned, home grown, tomatoes to make a sauce over fried fish.
We use jalapeno & a little habanero for the fire. :s9:

I just strained out the liquids and bottled it up. Smells like spicy pickles. I figured I better give it a go and see if I can handle a full dose of an ounce (2 TBSP).

It sent down pretty smooth and the apple cider vinegar is the predominate flavor. There is an earthy taste, probably from the horseradish. Not too bad. A couple seconds later, my stomach didn't like it. I got that I'm gonna vomit" feeling and started sweating. The vomit feeling went away after a few minutes and I stopped sweating about 15 minutes later. This is crazy stuff.....

I have a feeling I will have to take smaller dosages or hide it in something else......

I find that a tonic of Ginseng , 5 star Hennesy , and Viagra . works quite well .

But then I am old and need more help than most.

Its that time of year! This batch I added turmeric and black pepper corns, dried rosemary and oregano.

I used the Cuisinart, sliced the fibrous rooty stuff and chopped the softer stuff. The chopped stuff filled a gallon jar about 3/4 of the way and I added 5 16oz bottles of Bragg's apple cider vinegar. I'll get a picture of it in a min...

I think I am going to pickle some whole garlic cloves in the jar this year. That might be useful for cooking.....

DYODD,
I have a really good wild oil of oregano in caplets. That is the first thing we start taking when we start feeling off. In allergy season, I take it as a preventitive. I hate sinus infections.

Here it is - bottled up. The little jar has whole cloves of garlic that I put in the mix. Wow, they are actually pretty good. The garlic flavor is a bit mellow with a vinegar kick and hot pepper finish. This is before I got the cheesecloth out to squeeze the last bit of goodness from the stuff in the bowl - got another whole jar worth out of it....
