Fire Cider Workshop
- This event has passed.
Registration required. Fire Cider is a tonic that is traditionally made in the fall season, most notably used as a cold & flu preventative. It’s an old folk medicine, a digestive tonic, aiding in proper digestion and to promote circulation. This vinegar based infusion gets it’s name from it’s wild combination of ingredients that includes ginger, horseradish, jalapenos balanced with lemons, rosemary, turmeric and honey. This is a great time of year to gather the spicy roots, fruit and hardy herbs for this preparation so you can use them throughout the winter and spring. Makes a great gift too!
Everyone will get hands-on preparing the ingredients while our instructor, Jen Capozzi will discuss the simplicity and benefits of vinegar infusions and variations for your herbal medicine cabinet. She’ll discuss what herbs do in our bodies and what happens when they are paired with vinegar.
You’ll make 2 quarts of fire cider to take home as well as a list of benefits and medicinal properties of each ingredient how they effect on our bodies systems. We’ll touch on harvesting & provide notes on additional uses for your cider.
