Ward Off the Flu with Fire Cider

Categories: Pin Up Girl

From what I know the following ingredients are always in a fire cider:
grated horseradish root
grated ginger root
chopped onion
chopped garlic
chopped hot peppers
raw apple cider vinegar

An easy rule of thumb is to use one part of each. Place them in a quart jar, about 3/4 of the way full and top it off with the cider vinegar. The cider is ready then, but should ideally rest for a minimum of two weeks before using. Give it a good shake every day during those two weeks, then strain the mixture.

In these samples below I decided to experiment with chopping and blending the mixtures to see if that made a difference in the potency. While it maybe it sounds disgusting, or you're intimidated by the precautions, take comfort in the fact that you can pronounce all of the ingredients. A little goes a long way here.

It will keep for at least a year in a cool, dark place.
