How to Make Honegar

by Contributor

Items you will need

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup apple-cider vinegar
  • Glass jar

In 2010, "Time" magazine named Honegar as one of its "50 Worst Inventions." Honegar was invented in 1959 by Dr. DeForest Jarvis, who thought the good health of rural Vermont farmers had something to do with the honey and vinegar they consumed. He combined the two as a health tonic, but it never caught on. Some people do believe 1 tbsp. of it mixed with water at every meal can ward off some aches and pains. It's incredibly easy to make.

Step 1

Pour the 1/2 cup of honey into the jar.

Step 2

Pour the 1/2 cup of apple-cider vinegar into the honey.

Step 3

Shake or mix the two until they combine.


  • Honegar can be mixed with sour cream, cucumber slices, plain yogurt, and fresh dill for a salad.
