Today is day 2 of being snowed in today in Atlanta, so I
thought it was a great time to write about one of my favorite new healing
discoveries. I’m talking about the
magical, spicy, vinegary FIRE CIDER, and it’s super easy to make at home using
easy-to-find ingredients from your local store… many ingredients you might
already have at home!!
Fire Cider is described as a folk remedy, created as a healing tonic to help
you stay healthy all winter long. Natural,
homemade, and powerful - My favorite kind of medicine!!
This brew combines a combination of healing plants and herbs
and not based on a rigid recipe. Add
what you like, but typical ingredients include apple cider vinegar loaded up
with with garlic, onion, ginger, horseradish, and hot peppers.
Why drink this stuff??
Fire cider is a
natural healing tonic- get psyched for
for its ability to boost the immune system and shorten a cold. If you are feeling sick, you can drink a few
tablespoons each day, and if you aren’t sick at all, then you can take a
tablespoon each morning to prevent a cold!!
The ingredients cause this natural medicine to be anti-inflammatory,
anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and a decongestant! Sounds pretty good in this
crazy fly season, doesn’t it??
Basically, you need this in your pantry, especially if you
are prone to colds. Not to mention, it
How to drink it??
As a healing shot! – 1 oz shot glass and down the hatch! (my preferred method, I love the taste!!)
As a tea – add to hot water and, for added benefit, hold your face over the steam
In juice – I don’t recommend this unless you are giving it to children. Otherwise, you can handle it without juice.
As salad dressing (it is seriously delicious)
(I haven’t tried it yet, but I can only imagine this would taste DELICOUS in a Bloody Mary)
Here’s the recipe I’ve been using, but you can add or omit as you see fit!
1/2 cup fresh
grated/chopped organic ginger root
1/2 cup fresh
grated organic horseradish root (you can buy this pre-grated)
organic onion, chopped
10 cloves of
organic garlic, crushed or chopped
jalapeno peppers, chopped
1/2 lemon thinly
2 Tbsp. of dried rosemary leaves
½ cup chopped
1 Tbsp. organic turmeric powder
1/4 tsp. organic cayenne powder
1/4 cup of
raw local honey, or to taste
Prepare your ingredients
EXCEPT FOR HONEY and place them in a quart-sized glass jar. (honey
comes at the end, if you want it!)
apple cider vinegar over the ingredients in the in the jar until jar is
full, ingredients covered.
Use a piece
of natural parchment paper under the lid to keep the vinegar from touching
the metal, or a plastic lid if you have one. Give it a good shake!
Store in a
dark, cool place for a month, shaking the jar daily.
month, use cheesecloth to strain out the pulp, pouring the vinegar into a
clean jar. (I use empty kombucha
bottles!) Squeeze out as much liquid
as you can.
Stir the honey into the strained out liquid
