Fire Cider is an effective, age-old remedy that can be made at home very easily. It is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that can help to boost the immune system and improve overall health.
1/2 cup chopped ginseng root fresh or dried.
1/4 cup freshly grated ginger root,
1/4 cup freshly grated horseradish.
1/4 cup chopped garlic,
1/4 cup freshly grated turmeric root
1/2 cup white onion chopped.
1 or 2 chopped cayenne peppers (or 1 habanero if you like spicy)
2 lemons zest and juice.
It is vital to use all organic ingredients. You don’t need any chemicals, pestiticdes or GMO ingredients in any herbal remedy! Chop all ingredients and place in glass jar and pack down. Pour in enough Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar to cover by an inch or more then seal tightly and let sit for 4 weeks in a dark pantry/cabinet at room temperature. LABEL YOUR JAR WITH CONTENTS AND DATE! Make sure all food items are under vinegar so it doesn’t mold. Use a fermenting weight if necessary. Once 4 weeks have passed, strain through fine mesh or cheesecloth – I like cheesecloth because you can squeeze the juice out. Add honey 1 tbsp at a time until you get desired sweetness. I don’t use much.
Take 1 oz a day for immune support.
Use as salad dressing – delicious
Use as meat marinade – yummy
