I use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar.

2 tsp cider vinegar
8 ounces filtered or distilled water
1-2 tsp local honey to taste of course.

I've figured out 1 gallon of water and 3/4 cup each of vinegar and honey.

Lemon juice can be added if you want or other fruit flavors.

Is local honey the same as just regular honey? Or is it like hard cider vs regular cider?

Taxy, I had no idea China produced "organic" foods. I'd shy away, too, if I was into organic products.

Local Honey, is honey gathered in your area.

Local honey is produced in your local area. Some people like to get it because they buy local, like produce, but there's evidence that eating local honey can help treat hay fever and similar allergies because ingesting some every day sort of inoculates you. And it is usually less processed and tastes better.

Very interesting! That would be a big plus.
In spite of all the hives in my area I don't know that anyone sells local honey. Maybe there is too much to go through for FDA approval or whatever is needed for jarred food.

I don't know if FDA approval is needed, local honey can usually bee found at local farmers markets.

Check locally owned grocers. They will have the honey. Or call the Apiary itself and see where they sell their honey.

lol, trust me, my town grocer is as local as it comes. If we had local honey, he would have it.
I'll stick to the local food I can wash. It just seems like there is a lot of leeway for contamination from eating honey that is gathered and jarred at a place beneath inspection.

I wouldn't worry about honey, it's naturally sterile. Even good for dressing wounds, it's considered antiseptic. We buy Yucatan honey in Mexico that's sold in recycled water bottles, it's excellent!

We did the health food store yesterday. Got more kalamata rolls and cheese for my midday snack. I should do this more often, not just when I am stuck at home.

Got more shelf ingredients to stash for making Thai curries and lots more of the broccoletta. That stuff is fantastic. They are printing out the kale salad recipe for me so I can make it at home. $8.99 a pound is a little steep


Princess would you share the kale salad recipe? Would
love to try it. I have Beautiful kale
in the garden.
