More Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar

Stop Potatoes Turning Brown
Add a good splash of cider vinegar to the water into which you slice potatoes. When you have finished you can dry them, prior to frying, with far less chance of their going brown.

Steaming Vegetables.
When you cook vegetables by steaming them, there is less vitamin and mineral loss this way. Add two teaspoonful of cider vinegar to the water you use. This helps the vegetables keep their color without the vitamin C depleting effect that comes from using bicarbonate of soda.

Sore Throat
Mix this special gargle which will give instant relief.
275 ml apple cider vinegar
100g honey
25g red sage

Heat the cider vinegar with the herbs until it is almost, but not quite, boiling. Do not use an aluminium pan. Allow to cool slowly. Strain after 24 hours, add the honey, stir until dissolved. Bottle and close securely. Use two teaspoonfuls in half a glass of water.
