Gaz’s Fire Cider

Cooks in:

Fire cider is believed to be good for you due to its potential immune support, anti-inflammatory properties, and digestive benefits. Ingredients like garlic, ginger, and vinegar contribute to its reported health benefits, including potential cold and flu prevention. I take a tablespoon each day. You can even use it for dressings & sauces.


2 onions, chopped roughly 

3 bulbs garlic, halved 

1/2 cup fresh ginger, chopped

1/2 cup fresh turmeric root, chopped

2-3 fresh chillis, chopped 

2 lemons, cut into chunks 

1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves 

1/4 cup fresh sage leaves 

1 cinnamon stick 

3 star anise 

3 cloves 

Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar


Add all the ingredients to a large sealable jar & then pour over the apple cider vinegar to cover completely. 

Store the jar in a cool, dark place for about 3-4 weeks. Shake the jar daily to agitate the mixture.

After the steeping period, strain the liquid through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a clean glass container. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

You can sweeten your fire cider with maple to taste if you find it too strong. Start with a tablespoon and adjust from there.

Store the fire cider in the refrigerator. It will keep for several months or even longer.

Take 1-2 tbs daily, mixed with water.
