In The Kitchen with Fire Cider!

Fire Cider for sale at the Zucchini Festival in West Stockbridge last Saturday, what a great day!

Fire Cider is great for warding off colds and flu but there’s so much more you can do with it!  Here’s what some of our customers have been doing with their Fire Cider:

Fire Cider Marinade: whether you are grilling, baking or sautéing, you can use Fire Cider straight from the bottle as a ready to go marinade for meat, fish, tofu and veggies.

Fiery Bloody Mary: Try mixing a few tablespoons of Fire Cider into your favorite tomato/veggie juice; add ice and vodka, if you like.  Super quick, even better for you and yeah, it’s got a great kick to it!

Sweet, Hot and Tangy BBQ Sauce: use Fire Cider in place of the vinegar in your favorite BBQ recipe or check out this recipe from About.com:
