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)
