To make Dr. Oz’s vinegar drink, mix 1 cup of grapefruit juice and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. If the drink is too strong, add 1 teaspoon of honey for sweetness. The vitamin C from the grapefruit juice and the acetic acid from the vinegar helps the body burn fat.

To make a diet vinegar-based salad dressing, whisk together 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 3 to 4 drops of liquid Stevia, 1/2 tablespoon of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos and 1 teaspoon of finely ground flax seeds. Add 1/4 teaspoon red pepper, 1/2 clove of finely grated garlic and a dash of salt. Whisk all ingredients until smooth.

Add chile, cilantro and garlic vinegar to chopped tomatoes and onions to create a salsa dish, or use the vinegar alone as a marinade. For this recipe, preheat 3 pint-sized canning jars in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Equally divide 6 cloves of garlic, 12 springs of fresh cilantro and 3 hot chili peppers into the glass jars.

In a large saucepan, bring 6 cups of distilled white vinegar to a simmer. Add equal portions of vinegar to each jar and seal tightly. Allow the jars to rest in a cool, dark place for three to four weeks. Use a cheesecloth to strain the finished product.
