Oil and Vinegar

Celtic Hills - Irish Gifts

Oil and vinegar…..the start of a fresh dressing. I love to take extra virgin olive oil, good old fashioned apple cider vinegar and some spices and make my own salad dressings. It just tastes better and I don’t have to worry about added ingredients that aren’t good for me.

Now when I talk about old fashioned apple cider vinegar I’m talking about what my Mom had in her fruit cellar when I was a kid. I remember being small and going down with my Mom and peering through the glass, gallon jug and seeing the mother floating in it. If you’re young you may never have heard of mother. Some of us older people grew up with mother in our vinegar.

My Mom even taught me a little poem about “mother” that her Dad taught her. It goes like this…..

There’s tears in the potato’s eyes,

The cabbage hung its head,

There’s sorrow in the cellar,

Because the vinegar’s mother is dead.

So what is mother and why should you even care if your vinegar has it in it? Mother is strand-like enzymes of connected protein molecules. You won’t find it in the super-market vinegar because it’s been pasteurized and filtered. This is called “dead” vinegar as there is no health benefit to this vinegar.

The mother is what makes apple cider vinegar healthy along with the essential minerals (copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, natural organic sodium and fluorine), silicon, essential amino acids, and pectin.

Apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight. It’s a notable fat burner because of its ability to keep sodium and potassium levels balanced. Take 2 ounces a day.

So grab your extra virgin olive oil, some healthy vinegar Guaranteed Low Prices at Swansonvitamins.com and some zesty spices www.penzeys.com , and make a healthier dressing.
