Vinegar started its life as some food that was rich enough in
natural sugar and, once allowed to go past its best, passed through
two stages of fermentation, first becoming an alcohol and secondly,
a vinegar. It is a natural fat-buster and it is also good for your
whole system, so finding ways to get a daily measure makes sense.
Here are a couple of ways to get you started:-
* Start your morning by drinking a mix of one tablespoonful each of
cider vinegar and honey in a glass of warm water.
* Add a teaspoon of the cider variety to a glass of orange juice, to
wake up your system.
* Mix vinegar, olive oil and a pinch of salt into your prepared
lettuce or sliced tomatoes, before serving.
* Add some to your fish and chips, or any other fried food that will
benefit from its use.
* Add a tablespoonful of the white variety to the water in the
saucepan, when you are boiling vegetables and it will add a little
* When boiling pasta or rice for a savoury dish, a little white
vinegar in the water helps reduce starch levels and therefore
contributes to sensible eating.
* Diluting a little of the cider or white blend in some warm water
is a good remedy for a sore throat. If you prefer, you can add sugar
to change the taste or use hot orange instead of water, as the
orange masks the taste of the added vinegar.
* Make your own cottage cheese by bringing a pint of fresh milk to
boiling point then allowing it to cool for a few minutes, before
adding a tablespoon of white vinegar, which will turn the milk into
those famous curds and whey. Strain through a fine sieve or a clean
fine cloth and the result will be cottage cheese. You can either eat
it the way it is or add fresh herbs to enhance the flavour.
* Make a sauce from cupful of balsamic, a tablespoon of both sugar
and honey and boil until it reduces to half its original quantity.
Add a tablespoonful of olive oil, some squashed garlic and some
black pepper and use this to coat meat or vegetables that are ready
to be baked in the oven. As long your teaspoon for spreading the
mixture on the meat hasnít touched the meat and been placed back in
the home-made sauce, you can store whatís left in a jam jar to use
at a later date.
* Tenderise meat by pouring some red or white variety onto it and
letting the meat stand overnight.
There will be many other ways of getting vinegar into your system,
so enjoy experimenting with this elixir of life. After a couple of
weeks of getting your daily fix, youíll feel a lot better for it.
