When we think of vinegar, we far more likely imagine it on our chips than we do in our bathroom cabinet. But history tells a different story. Vinegar, in this case apple cider vinegar, is made when any alcoholic beverage made from fruit is exposed to the oxygen and bacteria in the air. The result? One of nature's greatest gifts.
In ancient Greece, Hippocrates - the father of modern medicine - used apple cider vinegar liberally as a healing aid. He particularly recommended it mixed with honey as a tonic for coughs and colds.
In France, 1721, the bubonic plague had just struck and the authorities were powerless to stop it. As the death toll rose exponentially it became harder and harder for them to keep up, so they agreed to release inmates from prison on the grounds that they would bury the infected cadavers. Almost all of them died as a result, except for a lucky four. Those four claimed that they had swilled several pints of cider vinegar each day and it had preserved them from the disease. To this day, ‘four thieves vinegar' is still sold in France.
