Fire Cider

Fire Cider! What a name, huh? It will burn whatever is ailing you, out of you! So bring on the fire!
I've not felt my best today and I can tell you, I sure wish I had started this weeks ago. I could have used it today!
I just read this when I googled 'fire cider' It comes from Mountain Rose Herbs and it says...

Fire Cider is a traditional remedy with deep roots in folk medicine. The tasty combination of vinegar infused with powerful anti-microbial, decongestant, and spicy circulatory movers makes this recipe especially pleasant and easy to incorporate into your daily diet to help boost natural immune system processes, stimulate digestion, and get you nice and warmed up on cold days. 

They also suggest adding honey to final product... I've not tried that. This is how I always make mine. 

The ingredients are:
Horseradish
Garlic
Onions
Hot Peppers
Ginger 
Apple Cider Vinegar

For some reason, the ginger didn't make the initial pic... but here she is in all her potent beauty! These ingredients pack a powerful punch, I'm telling you!
I used to call this a Health tonic. I may have even blogged about it... but a friend of mine called it Fire Cider and I thought that was an awesome name!

This is what you want to do. 
Equal parts.
If you have 1 cup horseradish, use 1 cup peppers, 1 cup garlic, 1 cup onion, 1 cup ginger... you get the idea. 
I didn't even measure when I made this. I just layered it. 
Once I filled it to the neck of my jar, I poured in the ACV (apple cider vinegar)


If using a metal cap, use some plastic wrap to help it not rust your ring. 
Shake this daily and let it set out and ferment for about 2 weeks- 1 month.
Once finished, strain the juice from the veggies and store. 

This stuff will absolutely knock out what ails you. Of course, always use good judgement about your health. This is good stuff and it is good for you... 
Hopefully you get what I'm saying. 
I do NOT claim to be a doctor, nor do I claim to be an expert in naturopathy. I'm just a mom and wife trying to take care of my bunch. 

To use, Shoot a tbsp or two as a daily preventative. 
Or if you can't shoot it, mix it in some tea or juice. 
If you already have signs of illness, take it several times daily. 

Fire Cider! Make it. Get it ready for the cold and flu season and stay healthy this year!
