1largelemon (including the rind)
1mediumorange (including the rind)
16ozapple cider vinegarwith the mother
3-4tablespoonshoney (local is best)or to taste. For sugar-free, you can use a stevia blend
Chop up the onion, garlic, ginger, horseradish, lemon and orange. The more finely it is chopped up, the more that will infuse into the vinegar. Add ingredients to a jar.
Add in enough apple cider vinegar to completely cover the other ingredients. Cover and store in a dark, cool place (I used my fridge, since it was the most convenient and it inhibits mold growth). Shake whenever you open the fridge. In 1-2 weeks (longer is fine, just watch for mold), strain the juice, add in honey, and consume a 1 ounce amount (either straight or diluted in water) daily during cold season. Store in the fridge in an air-tight container.
