Fire Water

Fire Water

An immune boosting tonic not for the faint hearted! 

Ingredients

½ cup grated horseradish

½ cup grated ginger

10 cloves garlic chopped thinly or crushed

1 medium onion

¼-1/2 scotch bonnet, chopped (without seeds)

1 lemon, zest and juice

1 tablespoons dried rosemary

1 tablespoon turmeric or 2 tablespoon fresh turmeric root

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Apple cider vinegar (enough to cover ingredients)

¼ cup maple syrup or a few drops liquid stevia to taste (optional)

Method

1: Add all the ingredients (except apple cider vinegar and maple syrup) into a 1 liter jar.

2: Pour apple cider vinegar until all ingredients are fully covered, this is vital to prevent it going off.

3: Add a circle of parchment paper to top of jar before screwing on metal lid to ensure metal doesn’t come into contact with the liquid.

4: Shake the jar to ensure all ingredients are mixed up. Shake for a few seconds ideally every day.

5: After one month use a piece of mesh or nut bag to strain out all the solid ingredients and the liquid into a bowl. Really squeeze the cloth to ensure you get as much liquid as possible.

6: Add maple syrup or stevia drops to taste.  

7: Discard ingredients into compost bin and pour liquid into a bottle, seal and store in a cool, dark place. It will keep longer in the fridge.  

7: Drink 1-2 tablespoons whenever you’re starting to feel run down or cold symptoms coming on. Take neat or diluted in warm water as a tea.
