  • 1 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup grated fresh ginger large, 5-6 inch knob, 2-inches wide


  • Scrape the peel off the ginger with a spoon until most of it has been removed. No need to be perfect here, a little peel won't hurt the mix.
  • Grate or microplane the ginger.
  • Stir the ginger with honey and apple cider vinegar in a glass jar or container. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
  • Strain the ginger, pressing to release as much liquid as possible. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.


Lasts for up to 1 month in the refrigerator.
