How to Make Rocket Fuel (Natural Antibiotic)HideShow Media
Gently bruise ginger with base of your knife to release oils.
Place ingredients in alternate layers in a clean, glass container with a lid.
Cover fully with vinegar and seal.
Place jar in a cool, dark place and let it infuse 4-6 weeks. If you need to dip in sooner- no problem! – the longer you wait, the stronger the medicine.
Pass liquid into a bowl. Gently press contents to release juices.
Add honey to taste OR squeeze some orange juice to cut the sharpness, if desired. If honey - start with 1 Tbsp at a time. Rocket Fuel is meant to be bold and not overly sweet. It should have some bite.
The infusion will be very strong at first! It will mellow a few days after straining. It can also be mixed into a drink (2 oz rocket fuel + 1 part tonic + 1 part soda, served on ice).
Best consumed within 3 months for freshness. Will keep up to one year, refrigerated. (Can also store at room temperature).
