Wade’s World: Tamarind Fire-Cider [Age-Old Tonic that Boosts Your Immune System]
The information provided on the site is for educational purposes only, and does not substitute for professional medical advice. Please consult a medical professional or healthcare provider.
Fire-Cider is an age-old tonic, used for decades to naturally boost the immune system. Fire -Cider has antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-parasitic, and anti-inflammatory properties.
You should plan out your fire-cider in advance of any medical needs, as it will take 45-60 days to fully complete. The process to make fire-cider only takes a few hours, but the steeping process to extract all the bio-available compounds takes 45-60 days.
What you need:
(1) Large mouth mason jar with plastic lid or a standard lid lined with parchment paper protecting any metal from the vinegar (you do not want to be surprised by an ‘old penny’ flavor when you’re ready to use your fire-cider)
1 medium onion, chopped
10 cloves of garlic, crushed or chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (I seed mine)
1 lemon, juiced and zested (I like to slice mine and add peels and all!)
1/2 c fresh ginger root
1/2 c fresh horseradish root
1 tbs dried turmeric or 2 fresh root
1/4 tsp dry cayenne pepper or 1 fresh pepper
2 tbs dried rosemary leaves
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (I use the kind with the “mother”)
1/4-1/2 c honey (I lean towards the liberal side of this to counter the acidity!)
You can add in other ingredients to the original recipe, as I do.
My added item are as follows;
1 Cinnamon stick, 2 tbs dried Thyme, 2 tbs dried Cats Claw, 2 tbs dried skullcap, 4 tbs dried Ashwagandha root and 6 pealed Tamarind seed pods.
Note: you can also do this the same way, but with 100 proof grain alcohol (replaces the vinegar) if desired.
Place all ingredients into the glass jar and fill to the brim with vinegar or alcohol. Place a tight-fitting lid and let stand for 45-60 days. For best results, shake container several times a week. After 4-6 weeks have passed, use cheesecloth to strain out solids, squeezing as much liquid as possible out. Place liquid into a glass container and use as needed or use 1 tbs daily as a preventive measure.
Does Fire Cider Have to be Refrigerated?
Fire cider contains vinegar and honey, two ingredients often used to preserve other foods. It’s safe to keep in the pantry for several months (in a tightly sealed jar), but it will last much longer if stored in the fridge.
