Recipe: Persimmon Vinegar Warm Tonic

Have you tried our persimmon vinegar as part of a warm tonic? Persimmon vinegar is more smooth and sweet than apple cider vinegar and has significant health benefits. Warm tonics are good all year round, but especially during colder months and when we are in need of an immunity boost. 

Scientific journals have written about the link between persimmons and these health benefits: lower cholesterol, liver repair and cleansing, reduced blood pressure, blood sugar management, improved heart health, healthy gut microbiome, weight management, antimicrobial functionality, antioxidant properties, and anticancer properties. 

Recipe

We always start with the basic elements

  • Warm water
  • A spoonful, 1 ounce, or splash of persimmon vinegar (PV)
  • A spoonful of honey (agave, maple syrup, or stevia)

Then depending on what we have /are in the mood for, we add any or all of the following

  • ginger
  • turmeric
  • cinnamon
  • cloves
  • orange peel 
  • whole persimmons 
  • live or dried herbs, such as nettle, mint, rose geranium, oregano, lemon balm (for stress), echinacea (immunity), elderberry (immunity), acerola cherry (vitamin c) and thyme (anti-viral)

Most importantly, get creative. There is no right or wrong way. Start with the basics and add flavors you're excited about as you go along. Our friends at Honey Hi on the east side of LA even add jujubes and persimmons to theirs! Check it out on Instagram
