FIRE CIDER

A True Wellness Drink

Te traditional Fire Cider recipe is a cold remedy that has been used for hundreds of years because of its antiviral, antibacterial, and anti fungal properties that boost the immune system and break up congestion. Fire-Cider is also a delicious way to stimulate digestion and warm up on cold winter days.

Preventative Immunity Booster:

  • As a “Wellness Shot” – 1 oz shot glass, once a day

When Symptoms Are Present:

  • 1 oz shot glass, every 4 hours

  • As a tea – 1-2 tablespoons in hot water. Breathe in the steam as you sip to relieve congestion

  • In juice – For little ones, it’s best to serve a small amount mixed with fresh-squeezed orange juice

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Diced Ginger Root

  • ½ cup Diced Horseradish Root

  • ½ cup Diced Turmeric Root (or 1 heaping Tbsp Ground Turmeric)

  • ½ cup Diced White or Red Onion

  • ¼ cup Diced Garlic

  • 2 Chopped Jalapeno Peppers

  • ½ tsp Black Peppercorns

  • 2 Lemons - Zest & Juice

  • Fill Jar Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Several Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary & Thyme

  • Honey to taste

Equipment

  • Quart-sized jar

  • Wax paper

Instructions:

Add the ginger, horseradish, onion, garlic, jalapeno and lemon juice/zest to a quart-sized jar. Pack them down lightly so that the jar is about 3/4 full. Place heavy roots at the top so that they will weigh down the herbs and jalapenos (which float). Pour a generous amount apple cider vinegar over the roots/vegetables. You want everything to stay under the liquid to prevent spoilage.

Keep in mind that some of the roots will expand a little so top it off well.

If you’re using a metal lid, line it with wax paper so that the vinegar doesn’t corrode it, then put the lid on.

Place in a dark, room temperature cabinet for 2-4 weeks. (A month is best)

You may then strain and place in air-tight jar in your fridge. Good for 3 months.

BE WELL! NATURALLY!
