How to Make Fire Cider Zest
This stimulating botanical blend captures the “fire” of traditional Fire Cider cold remedy (get the recipe) but it is stirred into sauces, soups, stews, salad dressings or used to lend spicy flavor to veggies, grains and other foods.
½ cup chopped ginseng root, fresh or dried
¼ cup freshly grated ginger root
¼ cup freshly grated horseradish
1/8 cup chopped garlic
Cayenne to taste
Apple cider vinegar
1. Place the herbs in a glass jar. Pour in enough vinegar to cover the herbs by an inch or two, then seal tightly. Let sit for 4 weeks.
2. Strain the herbs from the vinegar. Sweeten with honey to taste.
