Previously I have I brewed Kombucha, and from there tried Water Keifer. But with both beverages I did not enjoy the finished product. Yet I still wanted to be able to produce a fermented, gut helping beverage in my own kitchen. So I kept looking.
A couple of days ago I came across an article for Switchel. Switchel is a honey, ginger, apple cider vinegar drink that is all natural with no artificial ingredients and it is also good for your gut and digestive tract. Count me in! Here is how you make Switchel....(it is really easy)
adapted from: Wellness Mama
1 quart jar
4 t raw apple cider vinegar (shake the bottle and get some of the mother )
4 T real maple syrup
1-2 heaping t grated fresh ginger
cool water - (if your water has fluoride, draw off water the day before and let stand to clear out the fluoride)
Add the cider vinegar, maple syrup and grated ginger to your jar. Fill with a scant 4 cups of water, stir gently. Cover with toweling or small sandwich bag. Let sit on the counter overnight to ferment. Refrigerate until needed.
Stir, then strain out the ginger pieces before drinking.
I will be taking this with me as I drive to the peninsula to see my dear husband for the weekend. I will report back with my thoughts on this beverage.....
