The Fire Cider® Controversy

I first learned about "fire cider" in 2003 at The Wise Woman Forum. I made a batch right away for our winter ailments.  This stuff will kick a colds butt in a hurry!

Herbalist Rosemary Gladstar first wrote about "fire cider" in her books in the 1970's.  Rosemary shared this recipe with the world free of charge for anyone to make. I personally don't think it is right for a company to trademark a remedy that is well known by its name by many herbalists.  Please take a moment to sign the petition, and use the recipe to make your own!

For each pint jar, you need:
1/4cup grated horseradish
1/4cup grated ginger root
1/8cup finely chopped garlic
1/2cup finely chopped onion
and a pinch of cayenne.

Grate all the roots and put in pint  jar.  Cover with raw apple cider vinegar.  Put a piece of wax paper over the top of the jar loosely put the jar ring on.  Let brew for six weeks strain and put in a clean sterilized jar.  I like to set my jar in a bowl while it is brewing in case it bubbles over a bit.
