It reeks of garlic, horseradish root, and ginger.
We spent yesterday evening chopping and grating the ingredients for our first homemade tonic, an absolutely horrendously disgusting tasting and smelling cure for the common everything. I took it a few weeks back for a cold, and it zapped it in just a few days. The same cold lingered in my mom for almost two weeks. (She didn't believe in the tonic's healing powers and wouldn't take it.)
So here she is...
One part hot onion, one part garlic, one part horseradish root, one part grated ginger, one part cayenne (we used serrano) peppers.
You soak all those tasty ingredients in apple cider vinegar for a couple weeks before she's fully ready for use. Then strain, gargle and enjoy.
Yes, it tastes like death. But if the plague hits your house, I know who you'll be calling.
