Fire Cider Recipe!



I love making Fire Cider at the end of Summer to help during the cold and flu season. I'm all about simple, natural prevention! Fire Cider has been known to help build our immune system, boost energy, ward off colds and flus, ease sinus congestion, lower blood sugar, curb cravings, aid in digestion, boost natural health processes, and raise our internal thermostat on cold days! It's hot, zesty, sweet, and vinegary!


I like to take a tablespoon each morning to help warm up or triple that if I feel a cold coming on. You can take it straight in spoonfuls (this is what I prefer) , add a splash to fried rice, add it to salad, etc! After straining you can use the herbs and veggies to make delicious stir-fries and veggie spring rolls!






Ingredients. (other herbs can be added for an additional kick!)

  • 1 medium organic onion (chopped)

  • 15 cloves of organic garlic (crushed or chopped)

  • 2 Tbsp. organic thyme (fresh or dried)

  • 2 Tbsp. organic sage (fresh or dried)

  • 2 organic jalapeño peppers (chopped, you can replace with habanero or add it if you'd like)

  • Zest and juice from 1 organic lemon

  • 1/2 cup fresh grated organic ginger root (I prefer fresh)

  • 1/2 cup fresh grated organic horseradish root (I prefer fresh)

  • 1 Tbsp. organic grated or chopped turmeric (I prefer fresh)

  • 1/4 tsp. organic cayenne powder

  • 2 Tbsp. of dried rosemary leaves (or fresh)

  • organic apple cider vinegar (I prefer with the "Mother")

  • 1/4 cup of raw, local honey, or to taste


Directions

  1. Prepare your roots, fruits, and herbs and place them in a quart-sized clean glass jar (make sure your jar is clean). Enjoy all of the aromas of the amazing plants!

  2. Pour the apple cider vinegar in the jar until all of the ingredients are covered and the vinegar reaches the top pf the jar.

  3. Use a piece of natural parchment paper under the lid to keep the vinegar from touching the metal. Shake well.

  4. Store in a dark, cool place for 4-6 weeks and remember to shake daily.

  5. After 4-6 weeks, use cheesecloth to strain out the pulp, pouring the vinegar into a Clean Jar! Be sure to squeeze as much of the liquidy goodness as you can from the pulp while straining.

  6. Next comes the honey. Add and stir until incorporated.

  7. Taste your cider and add more honey until you reach the desired sweetness.
