Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is touted as something which will cure almost every ill. Except cancer, the people who promoted it as a cure for cancer were halted by the FDA. When I tried it last time, it might have had a slight effect on my uric acid level, but not enough to matter.
So why am I trying it now? Actually, I am trying beetroots. Beetroots supposedly help lower your blood pressure (apart from tasting great), I often use them in my curries, as you may have noticed. And in Sweden, pickled beetroots is a common condiment (you can find them at IKEA). So why not combine two health benefits, and pickle beetroots in apple cider vinegar?
I did, and to add to the health benefit, I also added onion and ginger (in separate batches). They make an excellent complement to curry, maybe a liitle pungent but it works.
And now I am drinking the pickle juice. It does no harm and is rather refreshing. And it tastes much better than raw ACV. Let us see what effect it may have, if any.
