  1. my favorite color is green.

    do you have a recipe for switchel?
    will you post it?

    1. Switchel for 2

      This is a small batch for two drinks....
      2 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
      4 teaspoons honey or molasses
      1/4. Tsp ground ginger
      1 1/5 cups water

      Chill overnight as steeping helps the flavor and serve cold. You can adjust the taste as you get used to making it and the base recipe is easy to increase.

    2. many thanks. laura ingalls wilder mentions it and i knew it had vinegar.
      it is sort of like pioneer gatorade.

    3. I did a post on this drink on February 25th 2015...a slightly different recipe, it was the most like what my mother called ginger beer.

  2. Yes, you are, indeed a "princess" as in special. Green!

  3. Oh I agree with Susan a Princess with a pocket full of treasures. Sounds much like me. I love all your answers:) Thanks for the laughs this morning. Hug B
