Fire Cider is our very own version of the well-known apple cider vinegar based tonic. It is a tasty blend of slightly spicy, warming, organic herbs and spices including ginger, cayenne, and turmeric. It makes a delicious brew to help support overall health, boost immunity and well-being all year round.
What is Fire Cider exactly?
The "Fire Cider" formula and name were coined by herbalist Rosemary Gladstar in the 1980s. The traditional tonic is a mixture of healthful herbs and spices including garlic, hot peppers, onion, and more. Those herbs are combined with apple cider vinegar, which infuses together for several weeks; and honey is added to the finished tonic.
It became so popular in part because it was made from common kitchen ingredients that were easy to find and inexpensive. It’s very simple to make, and tastes great, with just the right amount of sweet, sour, and spicy.
The "Fire Cider" recipe has since been adapted countless times over the last 40 years with hundreds of different variations.
