Immune Boosting Fire Cider

0-100402359-fire-cider

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c fresh grated ginger root
  • 1/2 c fresh grated horseradish root
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 10 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • Zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp. dried rosemary leaves
  • 1 tbsp. dried thyme
  • 1 turmeric powder
  • raw apple cider vinegar (with the "mother")
  • raw honey or grade b maple syrup to taste

Instructions

  1. Add the prepared herbs, spices, and lemon juice and zest to a quart-sized jar.
  2. Top off the jar with apple cider vinegar, leaving some room at the top for shaking the jar.
  3. Cover the jar, but place a piece of wax paper or parchment paper under the lid to keep the cider from touching the metal lid.
  4. Shake very well to get everything mixed together, then store in a cool, dry place (like a pantry or cupboard) for a month. Remember to shake the jar daily!
  5. After a month, strain out the pulp through a cheesecloth, pouring the cider into a clean jar. Squeeze out as much liquid from the pulp as possible.
  6. Add honey or maple syrup to the strained cider and stir well. Taste the cider and, if needed, add more honey/maple syrup to reach desired sweetness.

Notes:

Take 1 tablespoon a day as a preventive measure, or 3 tablespoons at the first sign of a cold.
