Fire Cider aka The One Thing You Have To Make This Season
Get ready to come alive, Sakaralite. It’s Fire Cider season, and we’ve created a Sakara-fied concoction of the age old cider, only this time, infused with suer adaptogenic, beautifying, nourishingly healing powers.
As the days get chillier, and the afternoons gets drearier, our immune systems get attacked by more elements than just the weather. The increasing physical darkness around us creates inner tension and emotional turmoil. All of which in turn weaken our sensitive immune systems, leaving us sick and unable to show up for life and carpe that freaking diem.
This is the time of year where we tend to react to others more than we do act. Though the coming of winter is suppose to be the most merry time of the year, let’s get real, it doesn’t always feel that way. How do we get ahead of the darkness? By burning it away with fire. Support your digestive system, rev up your metabolism, and have energy you didn’t know was possible in this kind of cold.
In this witchy looking jar, you’ll find some of the everyday ingredients that come in your Sakara meal. You’ll also find some additional goodies that we like to add to meals and tonics for that extra sexy punch every now and again.
Sakara-fied Fire Cider Recipe
5 cups of organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup horseradish, or burdock root, grated
1 head of garlic, grated
1 whole small onion, chopped
1/2 large knob of ginger, grated
1 tsp of cayenne pepper, or one fresh jalapeño pepper
1 tsp turmeric
the juice of 1 lemon
the peel of 1 orange
1/2 of a large beet, peeled + chopped
2 tsp schizandra berry
2 tsp ho shou wu
1 tbsp elderberries
a couple drops of trace minerals
1 tbsp of manuka honey (or more depending on your sweetness preference)
a sprinkle of rose hip petals
Make this beauty today, and allow it to sit out and ferment for 6-8 weeks (though, you can enjoy it now if you please). Once the fermentation process is complete, enjoy shots of it every day and every time you’re feeling extra ill. Make this process your own, and whisper fall / winter intentions into the jar as you go. Seal it up, store it away, and bring it out when the time is right to shine your light (who doesn’t love a good rhyme?) Here's to your health!
