Chopped & Grated
Chopped ingredients waiting for vinegar
Put all chopped/shredding ingredients into quart sized jar and fill with vinegar. The vinegar should cover all ingredients entirely and then some due to expanding. Place a cheese cloth or wax paper between lid and glass. to ensure the metal lid to the jar does not touch any of the liquid. Besides for the daily shake, put cider in a cool dark area and let it sit for a month. Once a month has passed, shake well, then strain out all ingredients and add as much honey as your taste desires. VOILA, HEALTH IN A JAR!
