What is Fire Cider?

Fire Cider is a popular herbal folk remedy created by Rosemary Gladstar back in the 70’s. The tasty combination of vinegar and honey infused with herbs and fire element vegetables is an especially pleasant and easy way to boost natural health processes, stimulate digestion, and can assist the body in many ways. It aids the processing organs, helps with circulation, blood-pressure, immunity, allergies, blood sugar levels, the list goes on and on. It isn’t a cure-all, but can be included into a great wellness regimen.

Because this is a folk preparation, the ingredients can change from year to year depending on what is in season and growing near you. Our fire ciders are full of local and wild food with local community in mind so that folks can EAT HERBS DAILY!

The standard base ingredients are apple cider vinegar, garlic, onion, ginger, horseradish, cayenne, lemon and orange peel, and local honey from Haw Creek Honey. I allow my ciders to brew and do their magic in a dark cool place with honey calcite and clear quartz to bring about abundance in health and clarity!! I sing to them and shake them daily. Other businesses are represented in my fire ciders. In EVERY BOTTLE there is Fermenti Foods’ fermented garlic salt for an extra probiotic boost. Other businesses included…Long Valley Eco-Biotic Farms, Red Moon Herbs, Floating Leaf Family Farm, Rayburn Farms, locally foraged herbs and herbs from my own garden. ALL ingredients are organic and/or sourced as local as possible!

Fire Cider can be taken straight by the spoonful, added to organic veggie juice (throw in some olives and pickles — a non-alcoholic, health-boosting Bloody Mary!), as a tasty shrub, splashed in fried rice, or drizzled on a salad with good olive oil. It can be added to sandwiches, cooked greens, cole slaw, as a meat tenderizer, mushrooms and cooked beans! You can even add to bone broth! We like to take a teaspoon to a tablespoon each morning to help get everything going or take several times throughout the day if we feel the sniffles coming on.
