Fire Cider- a fermented immunity boosting tonic filled with vitamin C, and powerful antioxidants to help you fight off colds and flu season.
Fire cider is a tangy, spicy yet sweet vinegar that’s fermented with vegetables, herbs, spices, and sometimes honey.
It’s been around since about the 1970’s. A popular herbal folk remedy discovered by renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar.
It is used as an anti-inflammatory and digestion-stimulating tonic, and to boost natural health processes, and I’m a big believer in it since it also helped us kick our mild case of Covid to the curb pretty quickly.
I’m not a doctor.
But I do have medical training and a deep passion and desire for finding holistic approaches when it comes to mine and my family’s health. That doesn’t mean modern Western medicine doesn’t have purpose because it absolutely does, but our bodies and immune system do greatly benefit from Eastern medicine as well.
There’s room for both in the world.
As always, check with your primary care provider to see if this is something you can do to help your immune system fight off cold and flu season.
Everyone’s medical background and health is personal and without knowing your history or current state I don’t want to advise you to take this without getting personal professional guidance. – speaking as a licensed health care provider.
What do you need to make Fire Cider?
- Raw & Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother
- Half Gallon Mason Jar
What does the mother mean?
Organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar contains a substance called mother, which consists of strands of proteins, enzymes, and friendly bacteria that give the product a murky appearance. It usually settles on the bottom so give it a shake before pouring it in.
I’ve bought both Bragg ACV and Kirkland brand at Costco, and both are great to use for this recipe.
First, I chop everything to fit in the jar. You want to make sure you have it stuffed.
Then I fill the jar with apple cider vinegar.
Top it with a sliced orange wide enough to make sure everything stays submerged.
Then place a piece of cheese cloth over the opening and loosely twist the lid on.
