Come learn how to make Fire Cider, a traditional cold and sinus remedy made with raw apple cider vinegar infused with hot vegetables, herbs, and honey.
Marcia Coppess will describe the history and basics of infusing vinegars, then teach participants to make Fire Cider. She’ll discuss why various herbs and vegetables are used in Fire Cider, and a bit about a current controversy over this traditional herbal preparation.
Then we’ll break into groups to process the foods, fill the jars, and top them with vinegar. You’ll have an opportunity to customize your own blend and will take home a jar of your own cold kicker!
Please bring a pint jar with a lid (a canning jar with a plastic lid is best).
You must register by October 9. so there is time to gather enough materials for all participants.
