Master Tonic


Sustenance

22 - 03 - 21

The official start of autumn in the Sans studio is marked by brewing one of our favourite herbal tonics; a potent anti-inflammatory tincture to see us through the cooler months. There’s a gentle reassurance in the seasonal regularity of this ritual with all the distancing, pivoting and juggling we’ve been doing.

The ingredients have one thing in common — they are all nutritional powerhouses, made even more potent through steeping. Kick-starting your mornings with a shot of this powerful elixir is like a wake-up call to your immune, digestive and circulatory systems, helping fortify the body. If you’re brave, swig a shot first thing; we add hot water and sip through the day.

Cook Time:

15 MINS PREP TIME

Serves:

4 OR MORE PEOPLE

Ingredients

4 tbsp fresh horseradish, chopped


2 tbsp turmeric powder


1/2 tsp crushed black peppercorns (to enhance bio-availability of turmeric)


1/4 cup fresh garlic, chopped


1/4 cup fresh ginger, chopped


2 tbsp hot chilli peppers, chopped


1 small red onion, chopped


4 sprigs fresh rosemary


Raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar (enough to submerge ingredients)


METHOD

Chop all of the ingredients and place into a jar. Pour apple cider vinegar over ingredients until submerged. Leave to macerate for approximately 1 – 2 months in a cool, dark place. The apple cider vinegar will draw all of the active compounds out from the ingredients (the longer it sits, the more potent it gets!). Once ready, crush and strain through a muslin cloth. Bottle and use. Mix the master tonic with olive oil for a salad dressing or add a shot to your stir-fry for a zingy, heated hit.

DOSAGE

For a sore throat, gargle and swallow as needed. For colds or flu, take one tablespoon every couple of hours. For daily immune support, drink one tablespoon every day.
