Fire Cider is a traditional herbal remedy used to help with immune support, digestion and warming you from the inside out!  It is generally taken by the tablespoon (diluted if necessary) to help ward off cold and flu symptoms through the dark and cold season.  It can also be added to winter soups or salad dressings for an extra kick!



  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 Head of garlic, chopped
  • 2 chilli peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated organic ginger root
  • 1/2 cup fresh horseradish, chopped or grated
  • Sprig of Rosemary
  • Sprig of Thyme
  • Pinch of Cayenne powder
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Local honey/Maple Syrup or sweetener of choice, to taste after steeping
Optional extra ideas:
  • Lemon, sliced
  • Turmeric fresh or powdered
  • Peppercorns
  • Whatever you fancy!


Add all plant ingredients to an airtight 1 litre jar and add Apple Cider Vinegar until it covers all ingredients and reaches the top of the jar.

Place a piece of parchment paper beneath the jar lid to stop the vinegar touching any metal (or use a plastic lid).

Store out of direct sunlight in a cool place for 4-6 weeks, shaking daily.

Strain liquid contents into another clean jar – add sweetener to taste.

Can be stored in fridge happily for a few months.
