Recently Tonchi has had a hard time treating his brother with kindness and is just outright mean to him, taunts him or pushes his buttons just because he likes to see him get upset. I’ve had a hard time trying to figure out how to teach him to treat his brother the way he would like to be treated. Over the last year we’ve been using “Kindness Medicine”! And it really works! I just used an old brown bottle with a dropper from one of our homeopathic medications that was finished. I filled it with pure apple cider vinegar. They each get a dropper full when they need help remembering to be kind. It really does work and they both LIKE IT!!! I have no idea how! Tonchi always says “It tastes like pickles!” Koa gets the full body shiver and face grimace, but then says “Mmmm like pickles!”
Anyway!!! How did I get from mustard to ACV? Well lets get on with it and sorry for the rabbit trail!
SO simple! SO easy!3 TBSP mustard seeds
¼ cup ground mustard
white vinegar (probably about 4-5 tsp)
water (1/4 cup maybe… or less)
salt to tasteJust mix to desired consistency and flavor and it’s that easy! You can also add a tablespoon of honey, some horseradish, fresh herbs, a little pepper, etc. Or whatever sounds good! I have no idea how long this will keep. I mix it up about monthly and I’ve never had a problem with it going bad or getting moldy. I am also really careful that there aren’t any double dips or dirty spoons dipped in! If it is contaminated with food, I’m sure it wouldn’t last nearly as long.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
