Fire Cider

Fire Cider is based on the Vinegar of the Four Thieves, which we covered a few years ago in this blog.   This is a pared down version but still just as healthy for winter time ills.   (And according to my children - much more palatable!)  It is very easy to make with Apple Cider vinegar, onion, horseradish, garlic, ginger and a pinch of cayenne.  Simply peel and chunk the horseradish, garlic, and ginger and add them to a wide mouth jar with a pinch of cayenne.  It needs to be full but not packed tight.  Pour in the cider vinegar and let rest for a month.  Strain and add honey to taste.  To this size jar we added about a generous 1/4 C of honey.  Take 1 teaspoon every 1/2 hour during your fight with illness.
