How to Use Fire Cider
Fire cider helps with cold and flu symptoms, boosts the immune system, and can help aid with digestion, but how to take it?
Chris said: I just take it straight- find the flavor nice and spicy
Danny says even his 4 year old grandson drains the glass every morning along with his fermented honey ginger!!
Most folks take 1-2 tablespoons at a time, up to 4 times a day when feeling the crud come on. Maintenance dosing is a tablespoon every day, although some will alternate it with elderberry syrup.
We take it whenever we feel we are getting a cold, sore throat, the rona, flu, or respiratory illness. It can also be good for breaking up any nasal congestion, especially the Super Sassy!
Other ways to use it are:
Diluted a Bit ~ For kids or the not so adventurous among us, we tend to mix 50/50 with elderberry syrup or any juice (grape is a favorite as it tends to also settle the tummy)
As a Tea ~ Diluted with honey, or honey water as a tea. This can be good for sipping throughout the day if you are under the weather. Check out our Ginger Tea as a great base.
As a Hot Toddy ~ go ahead, drop some in hot water with whiskey, lemon and honey - enjoy while also boosting your health!
As a Marinade ~ we are still experimenting with this idea, but we’ve heard its delicious and tenderizes the meat as well.
As a Salad Dressing ~ we enjoy this with salad every week- we mix with olive oil, some mustard, salt and thyme, some may mx in some additional honey as well. Toss this with greens, Parmesan, bacon and candied nuts for a real treat!
Bonus: Our fire cider dust is great as a sprinkle in soups or on top of roasted root veggies!
There you have it! If you have a unique way that you take it we would love to feature it on our social media!!! After all, it's the medicine of the people!
