5 from 8 reviews

Learn how I make my fire cider recipe with turmeric! Homemade fire cider is a natural health-promoting tonic that can help with congestion and cold symptoms.


  • 25 grams turmeric root
  • 50 grams ginger root
  • 5 grams rosemary, fresh
  • 70 grams jalapeno
  • 70 grams lemon
  • 150 grams white onion
  • 70 grams garlic, fresh and crushed
  • 10 grams horseradish
  • 5 grams sea salt
  • raw vinegar


  1. 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.
  2. Place your kitchen scale on the counter. Turn it on and set it to weigh in grams.
  3. Measure out all your ingredients,
  4. Add the designated amounts of ingredients to the jar. Squish everything down into the jar if necessary.
  5. 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.
  6. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for 24 hours then store the fire cider in your fridge indefinitely.
  7. You should let it age in the fridge for about four weeks before using it.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
