Natural Umber is unlike any other apple cider vinegar you may have tried before
Natural Umber ACV can be used in countless ways, as part of a healthier daily diet.
Here are just a few simple ideas to get you started;
As a Hot Drink
No need for honey. Mix a capful (about 10ml) of Natural Umber in a cup of warm water, for a soothing hot drink. You can add other flavours if you like, but it’s just like an apple tea taken on its own!
A Simple Salad Dressing
Blitz a shallot, 100ml of Natural Umber Apple Cider Vinegar, a tablespoon of Dijon mustard, sea salt and black pepper. Then gradually add 300ml of olive oil until smooth.
Wild Garlic Capers
Collect the wild garlic just when the flowers have finished and remove any remaining petals. Pick the seed pods off the stems and don’t worry too much about a little bit of stem being left on. For the brine, boil 250ml of water with 2 tablespoons of sea salt. Put the seed pods into a […]
A common recipe among foragers! Fill a jar with elderflowers. Pick them on a dry day when they are creamy and full of pollen. Aim for as little stalk as possible, snip with scissors and don’t worry about a bit of green. Pour in Natural Umber vinegar to cover the flowers and weigh them […]
Grown-Up Soft Drink
Sometimes (yes, really), you don’t actually need or want to have an alcoholic drink. And your insides will thank you for this delicious alternative. Just add 10-20ml (about 2 tablespoons) of Natural Umber to a glass of 200-300ml of iced sparkling water. It’s a surprisingly refreshing and delicious drink, perfect ‘for when you’re not drinking’. […]

Making a morning smoothie doesn’t have to be a chore. You don’t need to carefully measure everything or spend ages chopping, peeling and slicing. Just whizz your favourite healthy flavours in a strong blender and see how it tastes. Any leftovers can be kept in the fridge until the next day. But why not make […]
Fruit Juice Kick
Some people find the taste of vinegar (even ours!) a bit strong to begin with. A great way to get into the habit is to add a dash to some fresh fruit juice, then build up to two tablespoons of ACV to 200ml of juice. Cloudy, pulpy juices generally contain more nutrients and and fibre […]
