This potent, food based remedy harnesses the natural power of its ingredients. It is simple to prepare, easy to store, has no contraindications and can be used with toddlers and children (I may just decrease the chilli element however).
It is a natural expectorant and antibacterial so will help to clear excess mucous, blocked sinuses and chesty coughs, in addition to bolstering your immune response to prevent coughs or colds settling in, whilst warding off future nasties.
- 3 large red onions
- 1 root of horseradish
- 1 large bulb of garlic
- 120g fresh ginger
- 120g fresh turmeric
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 scotch bonnet chillies
- 1 litre organic raw apple cider vinegar with the mother
- Peel the garlic and onions, then add all ingredients to high-speed blender and purée until smooth.
- Transfer to an airtight jar and leave the pulp to sit in the juices for a couple of days at room temperature before moving to the fridge. It will increase in potency the longer it has to mature, simply strain off as required, you can top up the pulp with a bit of additional apple cider vinegar and leave it to steep again.
- It will preserve itself.
