Ingredients for Our Homemade Fire Cider:
Gather your ingredients to embark on this flavorful journey:
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- 1 ginger root
- 1 jalapeño
- 1 cayenne pepper
- 1 small horseradish root
- 1 cup of cranberries
- 1 blood orange
- 5 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons of rosemary
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of black peppercorn
- Apple cider vinegar with the mother (enough to fill a half-gallon jar)
Begin by finely chopping the lemon, lime, ginger root, jalapeño, cayenne pepper, horseradish root, and blood orange. Remember, the smaller the pieces, the more their flavors infuse into the cider.
Add the chopped ingredients to a clean, half-gallon jar along with the cranberries, garlic cloves, rosemary, turmeric, and black peppercorn.
Pour the apple cider vinegar with the mother into the jar until it covers all the ingredients, ensuring they're fully submerged.
Seal the jar tightly and give it a good shake to mix all the ingredients.
Store the jar in a cool, dark place for about a month, shaking it daily to ensure thorough blending and infusion of flavors.
After a month, strain the mixture through cheesecloth or a fine-mesh strainer, squeezing out all the liquid. Transfer the potent fire cider into clean, airtight bottles or jars.
