FIRE CIDER TONIC
Fire cider is a spicy tonic—full of anti-inflammatory and digestion-stimulating vegetables, herbs, and spices—used
to prevent and treat colds by boosting your immune system. It also improves blood circulation and digestion,
among other benefits.
Ingredients: Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, Local Raw Honey, Garlic, Onion, Ginger root, Horseradish root,
Cayenne Pepper, Lemon, Anise Star, Calendula flowers, Fennel seed, Rosemary, Rosehips, Thyme, Tulsi
The most common way to use fire cider is to put a teaspoon in some water and drink it, similar to how some people "take" a teaspoon (or tablespoon) of raw apple cider vinegar daily to stimulate metabolism and aid digestion.
It tastes good mixed with warm water and honey to make a warm beverage.
I don't drink it everyday. However, one of my favorite uses is for making salad dressing, in place of plain vinegar, so we do eat it regularly. See my blog for that recipe.
I also like it in stir fries or sprinkled over cooked veggies or scrambled eggs or potatoes or...
If I develop a sore throat, or even feel one coming on, I gargle with straight fire cider and then swallow it. The garlic and onion and, well, everything, will work pretty well at killing off viruses that might be lurking. I will do this every couple hours until the sore throat goes over.
If I feel like I may be getting the flu or know I have been exposed to the flu, I will actively take a teaspoonful every few hours in some form.
