Fire Cider

Updated: Feb 15




Fire cider is an apple cider vinegar-infused tonic that is great for fighting off germs and keeping the immune system running at optimal health. It's full of antioxidant-rich ingredients that help with everything from metabolism, to gut-health, to fighting pathogens. It provides an energy boost, helps ease sinus congestion, curbs cravings, aids digestion, and can even help to lower blood sugar.


Before deciding to try making my own, I had been purchasing these tonics from the Farmer's Market and let me tell ya, they aren't cheap! I had no idea how easy and cost-effective this was to do at home. This is a great product to have on hand to stay healthy year-round, and stays good in the fridge for months.


Ingredients


1 Orange

1 Blood Orange

1 Lemon

1 Habanero pepper

1 Jalapeno pepper

3 Turmeric roots

1 Ginger root

1 Onion

1 Mango

1 Garlic bulb

1 Horseradish root

Fresh Rosemary

Dried Oregano

Cayenne Pepper

2 Cinnamon sticks

Raw Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar, unpasteurized (about 2 1/2 quarts)


Instructions


1. Thoroughly wash produce. Everything will be sliced, skins and all.

2. Slice and layer each ingredient into gallon-sized jar. The jars must be made of glass and have plastic lids due to the acidity of the product. These are the ones I use.

3. Slice and layer the ingredients. The spices I didn't really measure. Obviously the more cayenne used, the spicier this will be.

4. Fill almost to top with the apple cider vinegar. Add honey (I used about half a cup) and top off with more ACV.

5. Sit in a cool, dry place on counter and allow to ferment for 15 - 30 days. Give it a gentle shake every few days or so to mix everything up.

6. Strain liquid into a large bowl and transfer into jars. Refrigerate.


A shot of this cider daily is great for overall wellness maintenance and you can increase it to several times a day if you feel yourself getting sick or for extra preventative measures.


Stay Healthy Friends!
