What is Fire Cider?
Fire Cider is a kind of tonic created from steeping nutrient-dense ingredients, such as vitamin-rich vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, and adaptogens in raw apple cider vinegar (with the ‘mother’). The result of this melange of ingredients is a spicy tonic that cleanses and restores the entire system so it can function at an optimal level.
The original Fire Cider Recipe was created by herbalist, Rosemary Gladstar, who used garlic, onions, horseradish, cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar, and honey in her recipe for their healing properties. Soon after it was published, it became the de facto tonic that alternative practitioners turned to improve low-grade, chronic conditions (such as inflammation, a weakened immune system, and a compromised digestive tract) within their communities.
One great thing about Fire Cider is that you can make your own version of it from nutritious foods that you source in the market! It’s not hard to do, it just takes some plant knowledge and lots of patience. We recommend thinking about what it is that you’d like to address from a health standpoint, and then select ingredients that can best target and improve the condition to include in your brew. The possibilities are endless!
Mind Your Manna’s take on Fire Ciders:
We created our very own lines of Fire Ciders (Fire Brew and Moon Brew), which has a base blend of raw apple cider vinegar and a multitude of strengthening plant ingredients that support the entire makeup of a person -- not just one part. We also decided to go beyond just making the original Fire Cider recipe and gathered the best ingredients to target and restore specific maladies that we all suffer from and often remain untreated at the root.
