This refreshing tonic encourages weight loss and vitality. Why not give it a try while the raspberries are in season. Here is a simple recipe that I'm trying. Some folks drink it with sparkling water as a dietary supplement. It can also be used in marinades for chicken or as a dressing for salads.
RASPBERRY VINEGAR TONIC l/4 cup sugar or honey 2 cups good apple cider vinegar 1 cup fresh raspberries
Put raspberries in a one quart jar, then pour vinegar over the berries. Cover tightly and let stand in a cool dark place. Shake daily for one week.
After 7 days bring vinegar, raspberries, and honey to a boil in saucepan then strain and bottle. Keep refrigerated if not sealed.
Tonic: Add 2 tablespoons to 1 cup of water

Pausing to reflect in nature can be both calming and therapeutic. Stopping briefly at the woodland's edge to overlook the valley and gardens, always helps me to unwind. I think relaxation is the most important component to health. It refreshes the mind and spirit. Here are some pics of my favorite resting spots on the property. I hope it adds a bit of peace and encourages a pause in your day.
Rest is the simplest remedy for happiness and vitality. Let's prioritize the pause in our day. Sally
