Learn how to make your own cold and flu season cider and be ready to fight off or avoid colds and flu this season. What is it you ask. Well this recipe is from Whole Apothecary and they tell us it is.
“Fire Cider is essentially an apple cider vinegar infusion. It’s spicy, savory, tangy, slightly sweet, and incredibly simple to make. It has been used by herbalists for generations to help ward off cold and flu symptoms and boost the immune system thanks to its long list of antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antiviral ingredients. It does take about a month to completely infuse, so we say now is a good time to make it.”
These are the ingredients you will need.
– 1 large head of garlic, about 16 cloves, minced
– 1 white onion, diced
– 6 in. piece horseradish root, peeled and diced
– 6 in. piece ginger root, peeled and grated
