Fire Cider is made with all raw ingredients. Fire Cider has an 18 month shelf life and is shelf stable at room temperature. Beware the underdose.
Did your grandmother ever tell you to drink raw apple cider vinegar? It's good advice, and more common than you may think. For generations of New Englanders, a tot of vinegar was a morning ritual. Taken daily, a tablespoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar can help support immune function and digestive functions.
To this base of vinegar, we've added whole, raw oranges, lemons, onions, ginger, horseradish, habanero pepper, garlic and turmeric. We let this mixture steep for 6 weeks at room temperature, to preserve the living vinegar culture and delicate flavors of the ingredients. Lastly, we blend a generous helping of raw wildflower honey into the mix. The result is potent but balanced, offering layers of sweet, tart and spice.
Fire Cider tastes great on its own, or as an addition to tea, juice or salad. As our grandmother would say, "Here's to feeling good all the time."
How can I use Fire Cider as a dietary supplement? The components of Fire Cider have been traditionally used in a wide range of healthful applications. Perhaps you can ask your Grandma, a friendly old farmer or your health care professional what they think about Fire Cider! Here are just a few ways to put Fire Cider to work for you:
Support your immune system: We all have a daily shot, and then have a few more throughout the day when we feel the need for more help staying healthy. Don't get too crazy though, take a breather and space out your Fire Cider shots with some thyme or holy basil tea!
Support your digestive system: A shot of Fire Cider after a big meal is a nice boost for your digestive system. It's like Fernet Branca, but without the booze, and with more vinegary spice. Ok, it's not much like Fernet.
Had too much to drink? The eye opening effect of a big slug of Fire Cider is a great way to shake off last night’s indulgence! Now go have a big greasy meal, followed by more Fire Cider and a much deserved nap.
Replace coffee: Doug L. in Connecticut says it best: "I tried this on a whim at the Big E because it sounded interesting. I had been trying to cut down on my caffeine intake for a while with little success, but once I started substituting my afternoon coffee with a shot of Fire Cider, I found the solution. Lots of energy with no caffeine!"
Does Fire Cider contain alcohol? No, it does not. It does however, mix well with alcohol if that's your style, so check out our Blog for our signature Fire Cider cocktails!
Is Fire Cider gluten free? Yes, all of the ingredients we use are whole raw, gluten free foods that we process ourselves. However, if you are extremely sensitive, be aware that we make Fire Cider in a mixed use facility.
How much should I take? For a daily dose we recommend about ˝ to 1 Tablespoon. We just take a small sip from the bottle. If you feel under the weather you can take that same dose every 3 hours. You can take Fire Cider any time of day; just keep in mind that it does perk you up!
What is the shelf life of Fire Cider? According to the FDA, the ‘best by date’ is 18 months from bottling. We put a batch code sticker on the bottom or side of every bottle to tell you when the bottle turns 18 months old. If you need help deciphering it, drop us a line.
Does Fire Cider contain sugar? Yes, there are 3 grams of sugar from the raw honey per one tablespoon serving.
How should I store Fire Cider? In an abundance of caution, the FDA feels that you should refrigerate Fire Cider after opening. We don't refrigerate ours, but hey, we live life on the edge.
Determine if your kids are really sick, or just trying to stay home: As told by one of our customers: "If my son claims to be sick, I offer him Fire Cider. If he refuses, he’s not that sick; if he accepts, he’s really not feeling well and gets to stay home from school, sipping Fire Cider and orange juice. Works every time!"
