Basic Fire Cider Recipe

Updated: Jul 29, 2022

It's that time of the year. As the season changes, so does your immune system. The sun helps strengthen the immune system and provides us with vitamin D. Shorter days means we are exposed to less sun which is why people tend to get sick during fall and winter.

What is fire cider and what does it do?

Fire cider is a very spicy (or not depending on how you make it) tonic made with apple cider vinegar, citrus and warming herbs and spices that can be taken at the onset of a cold or flu, and during. It can also be taken at any time for an immune boost. So you don't have to wait until your sick to have your daily dose of fire cider.

It boosts your immune system by providing much needed vitamins, eases congestion, and improves digestion and circulation. It's also anti-viral and ant-inflammatory.

How to make fire cider

This is a basic recipe. There are somethings I add to mine that I keep secret. This is based on my 80oz jar. So base your recipe on the size of the jar you choose.

  • Sliced Ginger (two 5 inch pieces)

  • Hot Pepper ( jalapeno, habanero,'s up to you)

  • Citrus (orange, lemon, lime or grapefruit)

  • Garlic cloves (as many as you like)

  • At least 1tbsp of Peppercorns

  • 1 large onion

  • 2 tbsp of Turmeric Powder (powdered or sliced is fine)

  • Cinnamon Sticks

  • Sprigs of Rosemary

  • Sprigs of Thyme

Place all of your ingredients in a jar. Choose any size you like. Cover the ingredients with apple cider vinegar and place plastic wrap or parchment paper over the top to prevent the vinegar from touching the underside of the cap if it's metal. Store it in a dark cabinet for 4-8 weeks. After your cider has fermented long enough, strain it using a cheese cloth or soup bag, then add honey (optional). Pour the cider into it's final container, and keep the finished cider stored in dark cabinet for up to a year and a half. Take as needed or once or twice a day for a daily boost or at the onset of cold or flu symptoms using a dropper bottle, shot glass or spoon.
