If we’re anything alike, you’re doing the most trying to boost your immune system and stay healthy. A few of my daily rituals include adding a little Apple Cider Vinegar to my morning cup of Herbal Tea to kill viruses and bacteria and also eating more citrus fruits to boost my Vitamin C Level. Be sure to check out my website for all your Herbal Tea needs.
While scrolling through Instagram I came across a recipe for a mixture called Fire Cider and I am definitely curious to give it a try.
From what I’ve read, Fire Cider has many health benefits, with the two most common being boosting your immune system and fighting cold and flu. The instructions say to take 1 tablespoon daily to prevent illness and 1 tablespoon 3 times a day if you are not well.
I’ve included a recipe below so that you can try it. I’ve also included a link for you to read more about Fire Cider and all of it’s amazing benefits.
Your second challenge of the day is to find additional ways to boost your immune system.
- 1 horseradish root
- 1 ginger root
- 1 onion
- 1 garlic head
- 1 turmeric root or 1 tablespoon of ground turmeric
- 2-4 habanero peppers
- Apple cider vinegar
- Honey (added after the fermentation process is done and fire cider is strained to balance the spicy taste)
- I usually start by grating ginger and horseradish roots and chop garlic, onions, and hot peppers and place them in a tight lid jar.
- It’s recommended to do the grating and chopping in a well-ventilated area if you can’t tolerate the strong smell and fumes, especially when you are grating horseradish root and onion
- Add apple cider vinegar to the jar and make sure everything is submerged and shake well.
- Screw the lid tightly in place
- Place the jar in a dark, cool place and let it sit for 2-4 weeks and don’t forget to shake it every day.
- After 2-4 weeks strain the fire cider and transfer the liquid part into a tight lid container and discard the herbs and veggies.
- Remember to keep the lid tightly sealed when you are not consuming it, so it stays fresh potent for longer
- Store fire cider in the fridge at all times. Fire cider has long shelf life and can stay good for up to 1 year.
