DIY Fire Cider / Master Tonic

Let the fire begin! This is really Cold and ‘flu prevention.

Let’s make fire cider / master tonic

What do we need:

  • Gloves and well-ventilated space recommended … the aroma … very strong and may stimulate sinuses instantly.
  • Chopped and grated fresh hot peppers, onions, garlic, ginger, horseradish and turmeric root.
  • Here is a starting point for Fire Cider / Master Tonic …
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 hot fresh chillies – careful with cleaning, wear gloves!!!
  • 1/4 cup grated ginger
  • 2 pieces of cut turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons grated horseradish (gloves, well ventilated space and maybe a facemask)
  • 700 ml apple cider vinegar – with the mother.

How to do it:

  1. Combine in bowl.
  2. Transfer to Fido jar.
  3. Pour in apple cider vinegar (made with love is always best / buy organic with the mother).
  4. Close and shake.
  5. Keep in a cool, dry place 2 weeks.
  6. Shake several times a day.(optional – don’t worry if you forget!)
  7. After 14 days squeeze and strain.
  • Place a piece of muslin in strainer.
  • Use the dry mixture in cooking or dressings, salsa, dips, etc.
  • Fire cider is ready for use. It does not require refrigeration.
  • Start with 1 tablespoon daily to strengthen immune system and fight the dreaded lurgy.
  • Gargle and swallow. It is best not to dilute.
  • Increase the amount every day until size of a small shot /liquor glass. If struggling with more serious infection/ illness, try 1 tablespoon of the tonic 5-6 times per day. Use smaller doses for children.

Tips … eat a slice of lemon /lime after tonic to ease the heat.

The tonic also makes a tasty salad dressing mixed with quality oil.

Or, add a dash to brines, soups, casseroles, raw chocolate etc.

Very sparingly!!!

Love and bacteria, xo Lynnie
