For this very special shrub, we infused calcium-rich herbs in vinegar for several weeks to extract their bone-building minerals. Then we strained the vinegar and mixed it with local prickly pear, and raw honey. This shrub can be used to make a delicious beverage by diluting it 4:1 with bubbly or still water, a sprig of mint or a squeeze of lime (or both).

Ingredients: nectar from locally foraged prickly pear, raw wildflower honey, Bernie's Best raw apple cider vinegar infused with nettle, oatstraw, mugwort and horsetail

Recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and GAPS-diet friendly.

Friar's Cyder

8 oz bottle

$18.00
In Store Only at this time
Inspired by the traditional recipe for Fire Cider, our Friar's Cyder is a powerful, immune-building tonic. Fire Cider was developed by the eminent herbalist Rosemary Gladstar as a warming and energizing oxymel (vinegar-honey based medicine) to aid digestion, boost circulation, and break up congestion. Our Friar's Cyder has all these properties, but we have eliminated the cayenne, a nightshade which can be inflammatory for many. Take a shot of Friar's Cyder straight as a tonic, add it to salad dressing, or stir it into warm tea or broth.

Ingredients: apple cider vinegar, raw honey, lemon, horseradish, onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, sichuan & black peppercorns

Recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, nightshade-free, and GAPS & Paleo Diets-friendly.

The remaining fine brown powder left is what becomes Dandy Blend. All the gluten and other water-insoluble substances are left behind.

With rosemary and pear this refreshing drink has a crisp and lively character. Jun is a unique cultured beverage that is made from honey and green tea.

This is a perfect alternative for those who prefer to avoid all refined sugar, or are on GAPS protocol, as the only sweetener is honey.
