Fire Cider, according to the Huffington Post, is “one of those grandma-style cold and hangover remedies that is designed to be one part soothing, one part refreshing and one part BURN-IT-OUT-OF-YOU.” That got my attention. Research ensues. In short, the tonic is a potent culinary alchemy of anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, sinus clearing, immune and circulation boosting ingredients. No wonder this herbalists’ treasure can supposedly remedy far more than just hangovers and the common cold. -As if that wasn’t enough!
At this point, I’m fully intrigued when I finally found it at a country store in the Berkshires. One sip later, I was hooked. But, several months and about a dozen 8 ounce bottles later (at $12.99 each), it was DIY-time.
