Homemade Fruit Vinegar

P1080578

Here is a glass of energy boost drink for when you feel exhausted.

It’s been about a year and half since I started working in NYC, and I am not gonna lie; working in the city makes you feel like a zombie by the end of the day. First thing you go through as you commute is a bunch of people ahead of you, almost making you feel like it will take forever to get to work. You can’t walk in a straight line; you have to dance around everyone every step of the way, hearing some driver honking at pedestrians because they don’t follow the traffic light. After the journey, a stressful 8 hour day begins. I like what I do at my work, but it sucks my energy completely by the end of the day.

Every single day, I feel like plopping onto a couch after coming back home and watching Buffy the vampire slayer.

Obviously, I needed to do something and this fruit-infused vinegar came into my mind after some research, finding out that vinegar contains potassium which relieves fatigue.

It’s very tasty and quite refreshing to drink it with sparking water.

********Recipe for Fruit Vinegar*************

  • 100g fruit (I used strawberries, blueberries and raspberries)
  • 100g sugar
  • 150g vinegar

All you need to do is to mix those ingredients in a big jar and let it sit for a week in a fridge (make sure to stir it at least once a day!). After a week, it is ready. You can add 1tbs of the vinegar to a glass of sparkling water or it would be nice to have it with plain yogurt too!

Enjoy 🙂

疲れた時に飲んでいる自家製フルーツビネガーをご紹介します♪

NYに来て1年半が経ちますが、精神的にも肉体的にも結構バテます。マンハッタンは人にまみれてるし、騒音もひどいし、汚いしで、朝オフィスに着くまでに疲れちゃったり。それからの8時間労働なので、家に帰るとかなりぐったりしてしまうわけです。仕事内容はとっても好きなんだけれどね。でも疲労困憊です。

これはどうにかならないかと色々調べてみて、お酢がいいんじゃないかと。疲れをとってくれるみたいですね。酸っぱいから飲みやすくしようと思いついたのが、このフルーツビネガー。なかなかおいしいのです。

材料は、、、好きなフルーツ、お砂糖、お酢、この3つだけ!これを1:1:1.5の割合で瓶の中でシャカシャカふります。そのあとは1週間冷蔵庫で寝かせるわけですが、必ず1日1日は振ってくださいね。

私はスパークリングウォーターグラス1杯に大さじ1のフルーツビネガーを入れて飲んでいますが、プレーンヨーグルトに入れてもおいしいかもしれませんね。

お試しあれ♪
