FIRE CIDER

Fire Cider, a warming, energizing concoction, its always in my kitchen,  especially good in the winter time, we love sharing this with family and  friends.  

We first learned it from Rosemary Gladstar back in the early 90's. 

 

Rosemary Gladstar suggests steep this recipe for 4 weeks - others say 2 or 3 months. We  find the flavor and strength we desire by steeping at least 8 weeks, and we have been know to steep for 6 months or more.  However, if you need it sooner you may certainly use it right away. 

We use Fire Cider as a tonic. We have always been drawn to the flavors of its ingredients and drink small amounts daily starting in the fall and all throughout the winter months. Also works great as a salad dressing. This recipe is an inexpensive, effective way to treat or stave off colds & flus, and to break up congestion. 

Some of the traditional benefits of Fire Cider's ingredients include: 

Horseradish ~ The antibacterial properties of Horseradish have been used to fight bacteria. Horseradish strongly stimulates the digestion, increasing gastric secretions and appetite. It's also a good diuretic that promotes perspiration, making it useful in fevers, colds, and flu. Horseradish is also an expectorant and mildly antibiotic, and can be of use in both respiratory and urinary tract infections. 

Ginger ~ is valued for its ability to warm the stomach, to ease vomiting & nausea and to fight off colds, chills and coughs. Ginger is useful for all types of congestion in the body. 

Garlic ~ supports the immune function and opens the pores of the skin to lower a fever. This herb's antibacterial and antimicrobial properties make it useful in treating bladder and kidney infections , yeast infections , strep throats and ear infections  

Cayenne ~ is useful for increasing circulation and to get mucous flowing. This herb is an anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant. It is used as a digestive aid to stimulates gastric juices. Many people report relief from migraines with this herb as well.  

How to Make Fire Cider 

Ingredients 

1 quart Organic Apple Cider Vinegar 

1/2 cup Horseradish root grated 

1/8 cup of Garlic chopped 

1/2 cup of Onion chopped 

1/2 cup of Ginger grated 

1 tsp Cayenne

Some people like to add a little honey to taste 

Directions 

Place all ingredients in a quart jar and cover with Apple Cider Vinegar. 

Cover tightly. 

Steep for 8 weeks. 

Strain into clean jar. 

How to Use Your Fire Cider? 

~ Rub into sore muscles and aching joints. 

~ Soak a clean cloth in Fire Cider to place on a congested chest. 

~ Drink it straight or diluted in a bit of water or tomato juice. Start out with a tsp or so to test your tolerance level. 

~ Mix with a bit of honey to ease a cough. 

Individual tolerance to the heat will vary so you and your family will want to experiment with quantity. 

We drink a small shot glass at a time. Others will want only a few drops mixed with honey, or only topically.  Have fun finding all the different ways to enjoy Fire Cider.

regarding John's question...

I have been making this for years.
I never refrigerate it. No need.
Onions are tricky. Black could be an indication of something wrong.
I make sure I use amber or dark container. Never plastic.
Sometimes I bury mine and let the summer's lightening charge it.

John- You let this steep in a dark closet. Shake daily. Should be ready after 4 weeks.

I made mine 3 weeks ago and when I shake the jar a tiny bit comes out,I felt like it was sealed pretty tight but I think a tiny bit of air must be getting in, wonder if I should throw the whole thing away or if it should be ok since it is covered in vinegar ? Any thoughts on this ?

The trend in bodybuilding over the past many years has been to train one body part at a time, once a week. While this protocol can be very effective, it often can lead to overtraining and it requires a heavy commitment of time. workoutroutine101.com
