The following day, stir in the vinegar, then tip the mixture into a sieve over a large jug and press through using the back of a spoon.

Why choose raw?
I’ve used all raw ingredients, as they have a fuller flavour than commercial versions. They also retain their natural enzymes, which are mostly destroyed during pasteurisation. These enzymes can have a beneficial effect on digestion – however, these recipes would be just as delicious with your favourite honey or a standard cider vinegar. We used Hill Top Honey, available from hilltop-honey.com and ocado.com. The raw cider vinegar we used, by Raw Health, is available from Amazon, Ocado or planetorganic.com.
