If you're like me, you're always wanting to try something new and to think outside of the box. Well, this time, I was thinking about and oldie but a goodie! During my Master Herbalist Class a while back, my instructor was lecturing on old world herbal remedies and this one really stuck with me. After making it for the first time, I really enjoyed the sweet flavorings of honey, the lively taste of ginger and the spicy (or fiery) notes of jalapenos.
This is one of my favorite wellness tonics that has been around for centuries, has several adaptations (hundreds in fact), but the fundamental benefits are still the same and I'm sure you'll fall in love with it as much as I did.
Today, I will be enlightening you with my favorite recipe for a Fire Cider Tonic - it's warming and sweet, but yet vibrant with a bit of a kick. The tonic is a natural way to boost the immune system, stimulate the circulatory system and increase your core temperature just a hare (to keep you warm on those frigid days).
Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup minced garlic (or 10-12 small cloves)
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
