>> 4 cups organic apple cider vinegar
>> 1/2 cup grated horseradish root
>> 1/8 cup chopped garlic
>> 1/2 cup of chopped onion
>> 1/2 cup of grated ginger
>> 1 tsp. fresh grated cayenne
Place all ingredients in a 4 cup (1 litre) mason jar and cover with apple cider vinegar. Cover tightly.
Steep for 8 weeks.
Strain into clean jar.
Important: do not use a metal lid because the vinegar will corrode it. Use a plastic lid if possible or put a layer of cellophane between the jar and lid, then tighten the lid. Or better still, put a piece of plastic over the mouth of the jar and hold it tight with a rubber band.
(If you use unpasteurized vinegar you may get a film that forms at the top of what is called, 'the mother'. Skim it off when you decant.)
Fire Cider Uses:
Drink straight or mixed with some water or tomato juice. Drink a shot glass a day to help fight off many ailments.
