Historically this vinegar recipe dates back the medieval period when the Black Death was happening to prevent the dreading catching of the disease.The usual story declares that a group of thieves during a European plague outbreak were robbing the dead or sick. When they were caught, they offered to exchange their secret recipe, which had allowed them to commit the robberies without catching the disease, in exchange for leniency. The city in which this happened is said to be Marseille and the time period was anywhere between 14th and 18 century, depending on the storyteller.
This infused vinegar can be used internally, externally, as an ingredient, or even as a cleaning item. You may find you enjoy (or grow used to) taking a swig each morning or night to promote wellness, or keeping it on hand for days you feel you may have had contact with someone who is sick. If nothing else, you can use it just as you would almost any other vinegar in salads and cooking. Suggested Dosage is 1 tablespoon 2 to 3 times a day as long a necessary or throughout the flu or virus season. There is no health claim. It is historic background.
