Recipes Containing Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a common form of vinegar and has many health benefits, including weight loss. It contains an active ingredient called acetic acid, which helps prevent a person from gaining body fat. Also if apple cider vinegar is taken before your main meals, it helps in reducing insulin levels. The antiglycemic effect of apple cider vinegar is very beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes if consumed on a regular basis. It also helps fix your tummy woes, from upset stomach to bacterial infections to intestinal spasms. Just mix one or two tablespoons into the water and sip it.

Does the thought of drinking vinegar make you, well, screw your face up? Well, reserve your judgment until you’ve tried this refreshing and healthy beverage.
- 650ml raw unpasteurized organic apple cider vinegar
- 1kg (prepped weight) rockmelon or similar melon
- 275g unrefined organic sugar
- Buy the best melon you can find. Look for one that’s fragrant and sweet.
- Cut the melon in half and then cut into roughly 10 slices.
- Cut into each slice from top to tail to make lots of small pieces, roughly 1 cm width (don’t cut through the rind)
- Then run the knife along inside of the rind on each slice and drop all the small pieces of melon in a container.
- Add the sugar, gently stir and mix well.
- Cover with a lid.
- Set aside for 24 hours in the fridge.
- Add the apple cider vinegar, stir gently and thoroughly.
- Cover with a circle of parchment paper sitting on the liquid to prevent the bobbing fruit from being exposed to the air and oxidizing further.
- Stir and taste it daily to follow the change in flavors for up to three days.
- When it’s ready it should be fresh and fragrant like that of a perfect melon.
- Strain through a conical sieve. (Don’t squeeze the fruit, keep that in the fridge and eat it.)
- Bottle the liquid and store in the fridge. Drink with soda and ice at a 1:4 ratio or try it with a spirit.
