Fire Cider (Easy Homemade Recipe)


This Fire Cider is easy to prepare and is a powerful tonic that can boost your immune system.*


Units Scale
  • 2 oranges, zest and juice
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced ginger root (no need to peel)
  • 1/2 cup sliced horseradish root (no need to peel)
  • 1/2 cup sliced turmeric root (no need to peel)
  • 10 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 habanero pepper, chopped
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup raw honey


  1. Place all of the first eight prepared ingredients, through the habanero pepper, in a
    quart-sized jar.
  2. Pour apple cider vinegar into the jar so that all of the ingredients are totally covered
    and the vinegar reaches the top of the jar.
  3. Place a piece of parchment paper under the lid (to keep vinegar from touching the
    metal) before tightly closing. Shake well.
  4. Store in a cool dark place for a month. Shake your jar daily.
  5. After one month, use cheese cloth or a fine mesh strainer to strain the fire cider.
  6. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to press all of the liquid from the ingredients.
  7. Add honey to the liquid and stir until combined. Store your fire cider in the
    refrigerator or a cool, dark place.
  8. Take 1 tablespoon daily for immune boosting benefits, or up to 3 tablespoons when
    you’re fighting illness. The fire cider will keep stored in the refrigerator for a year.
