Description

Tickly throat? Cough? Congestion? Any time I feel a cold coming on, I start taking shots of my homemade Fire Cider recipe that’ll help a cough and cold naturally and quickly.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh ginger root (grated)
  • 1/2 cup fresh horseradish root (grated)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 10 garlic cloves (crushed or chopped)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers (chopped)
  • 1 lemon (zest and juice)
  • Apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. Dice, peel and chop all ingredients into small pieces and toss into a bowl. (If you’ve never grated fresh horseradish, it can be intense!)
  2. Mix it all together and scoop into a quart-sized mason jar.
  3. Pour apple cider vinegar on top of all ingredients until completely submerged.
  4. Cover with an airtight lid. (You can place a piece of parchment paper under the lid to keep the vinegar from touching the metal, or use a plastic lid if you have one.)
  5. Shake well.
  6. Store in a dark, cool place for a month (like the back of a pantry) and shake every few days.
  7. After a month, pour contents through a sieve to separate the liquid from the solids.
  8. Pour the liquid that went through the sieve in a sterilized clean jar in the fridge— this is your Rawkstar Tonic. When you feel the onset of a tickly throat, congestion, cough— take a shot glass full of this a few times a day.
