The start of the year is typically the colder parts of the winter months here in Ireland. A perfect time to whip up another batch of Fire Cider. If you put a whole bunch of the best health boosting ingredients together, you are bound to end up with a good thing.
Fire Cider is good in smoothies, as a tonic,, in tea, in salads dressings, drizzled on roasted vegetables etc.
Here's our HomeGrownHOME version. I'm a firm believer in use what you have. We didn't have horseradish, we added more ginger root & garlic. We also substituted fresh jalapenos with pickled ones.
