I Feel Like I Am Making MoonShine!

I was looking around on the internet and found this site that had the most powerful natural antibiotic ever-kills any infections in the body.  I decided to take a look at it!

I remember when I was young my dad was always eating horseradish, hot peppers and he even made onion salad.  His famous last words were "Eat that it will clean you out".  Now that I think back, I had no idea what he meant by, it will clean you out, but I ate it anyway.  I certainly wanted to be cleaned out!  Now that I am 62, I understand and that is why this recipe intrigued me.   

Here are the ingredients:  Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
                                          Fresh Ginger
                                          Fresh Horseradish

As I was reading I could hear my dad saying yes, you need to make that.  I read the whole article and there were about 350 comments, some heated arguments, some people saying you are nuts for taking this, others disagreeing and saying how wonderful it is.  This is a very old recipe , so I decided to try it. 

As far as I am concerned, there is nothing in here that you cannot eat.  You mix it up and let it set for two weeks shaking it everyday several times.  Did that, and then we started taking it.  I do have to say it does not taste great.  My husband calls it "Hooch"!  He will yell at me and say "hey we haven't taken our hooch yet!"  Now I will say how much better we are feeling.  My husband came home from work the other day and told me he had a skip in his step today at work!  I got a big laugh at that!  I am not recommending this to anyone.  It is personal preference.  I just made my second batch today.  I did get a little smarter this time.  The first time I cut all of these items crying the whole way.  It took me about an hour to make it.  Then after it sets for two weeks you drain out the vegetables and save the liquid.  This time I thought to my self, why do I have to stand here and chop all of that up?  I cleaned my garlic, cleaned my onion.  Then I hooked up my kitchen aid mixer with the grinder on it and just ground everything up and filled up my jar!  Same difference and this time it took me about 10 minutes to make.  I am sure I am cleaned out now and I feel great!!

Here is the website if you want to read about it and get the recipe.
If anyone decides to try it, let me know how you like it!
P.S. Onion Salad - Slice onions and add salt.  Put in a container and shake it for several minutes.  My dad used two soup bowls.  One on top of the other and then he would shake it.  Then you add a little vinegar and sour cream.  Lets see, oh probably about 1/2 hour and eat.  He loved this!
