This week I’d love to focus on our Willy’s Turmeric & Honey Vinegar and why I love it. 


So what is Willy’s Organic Turmeric and Honey Apple Cider Vinegar and why do I love it?

Willy’s Organic Live Apple Cider Vinegar with Turmeric & Honey is an anti-inflammatory wellness tonic with adaptogens and gut-healthy goodness! The black pepper is a vital ingredient as it helps with the absorption of all-important curcumin in turmeric.

As with all of our ACV, our T&H ACV is raw, unpasteurised, organic and alive with the mother!  This means that it is is full of gut-friendly probiotics (beneficial bacteria).  It’s this beneficial bacteria that helps to support our gut health and overall wellbeing.

This lovely ACV is award winning as it won a 2 Gold Stars in the 2021 Great Taste Awards!!

Here’s what one of the judges had to say: “A cloudy vinegar with a rich ochre colour. Some honey notes on the nose. A wonderfully balanced flavour with rich apple flavour, honey sweetness and turmeric earthiness. A superb example and much enjoyed neat as well as diluted and would be fantastic in many dishes.”

What ingredients does it contain?

Just 4 simple ingredients: Organic Live Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey, Turmeric & Black Pepper.

As well as all the delicious health benefits of ACV, this product has added benefits due to the queen of spices: turmeric, and the deliciously natural sweet honey!

As I’ve mentioned a fair few times before, when it comes to spices for gut health, turmeric is the ONE.  Turmeric contains several compounds with medicinal properties – the main one being curcumin.

Curcumin has many health benefits including:

  • anti inflammatory
  • anti oxidant 
  • anti bacterial 
  • supporting the immune system
  • mood boosting

An antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powerhouse: turmeric!

We pair turmeric with black pepper in our products as black pepper contains piperine.  Studies show that piperine is a natural substance that can increase turmeric absorption by up to 2000%.  But even more, black pepper itself has many health benefits as it:

  • is rich in antioxidants
  • is a powerful anti-inflammatory
  • is used in Ayurvedic Medicine
  • boosts absorption of nutrients (such as Curcumin)
  • promotes gut health
  • is a natural pain reliever

And then there’s the honey!  Not only does this help to sweeten our beautiful organic apple cider vinegar, it also helps to boost your health as it is:

  • rich in antioxidants
  • high in plant compounds
  • antimicrobial
  • natural antibiotic
  • protects skin
  • rich in phytonutrients

I like to use our T&H vinegar in various different recipes, from traybakes to salads.  You can check these out in the recipe section of our website here.

My personal favourite T&H Vinegar recipe is our Zesty Lemon and Herb Whole Roast Cauliflower recipe from the lovely @lets_eat_better_together.  Cruciferous vegetables are not only delicious but contain phytonutrients — plant-based compounds that help to lower inflammation! This recipe is easy to make and by roasting, you get such a deeper flavour making a perfect main meal! Get the full recipe here.

How else can it be used?

  • as a daily dose shot first thing in the morning or 30 mins before meals.
  • caffeine replacement with an energising warm drink: ACV, warm (not boiling) water and optional: your favourite additional ingredients such as lemon.
  • drizzled over most meals: soups, salads, roasted veg, meat basting etc
  • added to a smoothie or fresh juice.
  • as a salt replacement
  • in sauces, dressings, dips, marinades etc.
