Herbs + Apple Cider Vinegar = Fire Cider, the Sweet & Spicy Health Elixir
Fire cider has been used and shared by herbalists for generations as a remedy to ward off sickness and promote health. For more than 30 years, best-selling author and popular herbalist Rosemary Gladstar has been touting the health benefits of fire cider — a spicy blend of apple cider vinegar, onion, ginger, horseradish, garlic, and other immune-boosting herbs. Her original recipe, inspired by traditional cider vinegar remedies, has given rise to dozens of fire cider formulations created by fans of the tonic who use it to address everyday ills, from colds and flu to leg cramps and hangovers.
Here, Rosemary Gladstar collects 101 original recipes for fire cider and foods made with fire cider, plus stories and songs, in a fun and sassy celebration of the health-boosting tonic and the community of herbalists who make it, share it, use it, and love it.
