Master Health Tonic

iphone fall 2014 300

I made some Master Tonic last fall and wanted to share how I did it.  It is some pretty potent stuff, but since we are a family that tries to stay away from pharmaceuticals and tries to stay as healthy as possible, we thought we would give it a try! Master Tonic is used to help cure/fend off colds and flu, as it’s ingredients are antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiparasitical.  You can take a spoon a day to ward off sickness or take a spoon every few hours if you feel something coming on.

Master Tonic Ingredients are Equal Parts: Jalapeno Peppers, Garlic, Onions, Ginger, Horseradish, Clove and Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

I peeled the garlic, onions, ginger and horseradish and pulse each item in the food processor. I then placed it all in a gallon glass jar to about 3/4s full and filled it up with the raw apple cider vinegar.

I just sat it on my kitchen counter for several weeks and I shook it everyday. The minimum is two weeks to steep it, but you can leave it there as long as you like. I left it out for 6 weeks. The more you shake it the better!  It doesn’t spoil.
I then strained it though cheese cloth and squeezed the pulp to get out as much juice as possible. then I put it in mason jars and labeled it.

The finished product, is jars and jars of Master Tonic that will never spoil. That’s right, it has an indefinite shelf life. REMEMBER: Take 1/2 to 1 Tablespoon at a time when ill or when you’ve been exposed to illness.  It has a pretty awful taste :) I would recommend elderberry syrup for the kids!  I’ll Post how to make it next week!

Do Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

iphone fall 2014 298

We love putting scripture on our walls! I saw a similar version of this on Pintrest and I just had to make it!  I had most of the supplies after making our giant ruler, so I was all set to go!

  • First I went to the shop and found a scrap piece of wood and cut it the length I wanted to fit my wall space.
  • I stained it with a light oak color, then wiped on a gray stain sparingly.
  • After it dried, I sanded the edges to make it rougher looking.
  • Then I borrowed a few of the kids hands and feet. ( they had fun getting messy) I recommend doing this outside!!!
  • After the prints dried, I used a brush and brown paint to paint the words.

We really love how it turned out!

Micah 6:8

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good;
and what doth the Lord require of thee,
but to do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with thy God?
