Fire Cider - Bärbucha Fermenterei

It was just a matter of time till this immune-boosting tonic set foot in our Fermentery.

So what is Fire Cider?

Wikipedia writes this about it: "Fire cider is a pungent concoction that is made of apple cider vinegar, onions, garlic and horseradish, sometimes with citrus, ginger and hot peppers. It is steeped for weeks and used once it becomes tangy and hot.[1][2] This home remedy drink is utilized to strengthen the immune system and ward off cold-weather illness."

Fire Cider is a traditional herbal remedy which combines a number of powerful root vegetables and hot peppers. It became popular over 30 years ago in the US, when the best-selling author and popular herbalist Rosemary Gladstar published her book titled "Fire Cider!: 101 Zesty Recipes for Health-Boosting Remedies Made with Apple Cider Vinegar".

And a beautiful rainbow, after mixing:

The final touch is the addition of a raw, unfiltered Apple Vinegar. And in this case it can not be any other one, than ours.

And the whole concoction is ready.

From now, it will take a minimum of 6 weeks for it to be ready.

We will update this blog when that time comes.
