- Wash all the ingredients in cool water and make sure your jar is clean. You need at least a 25-ounce jar for this recipe.
- Place your kitchen scale on the counter. Turn it on and set it to weigh in grams.
- Measure out all your ingredients,
- Add the designated amounts of ingredients to the jar. Squish everything down into the jar if necessary.
- Top off the jar with raw apple cider vinegar. Place the lid on the jar and secure it tightly. Gently shake the jar to dissolve the salt.
- Let the mixture sit at room temperature for 24 hours then store the fire cider in your fridge indefinitely.
- You should let it age in the fridge for about four weeks before using it.
- To use fire cider strain off the liquid through a cheesecloth into a clean jar for storage. Combine 2 tablespoons of the fire cider liquid with 1 teaspoon of honey and a squeeze of lemon juice and drink it.
- You can pour more raw vinegar over the ingredients and let it age in the fridge to use them again.
- Fire cider can be successfully stored at room temperature in most cases, but if you are using homemade vinegar as I do, it’s best to age it and store it in the fridge.
- Optional: you can add two tablespoons of sauerkraut brine to add more probiotics to the mix.
