Vegan Friendly Fire Cider: An Easy Immunity-Boosting Recipe! 🔥 – Video

In this video, Jill shows us how to make a healthy vegan fire cider, an easy immunity booster just in time for cold and flu season. Fire cider is made with apple cider vinegar and a variety of fiery and immune-boosting ingredients such as hot peppers, ginger, turmeric, garlic, cinnamon, cranberries, lemon, and various herbs. Jill walks us through the process of assembling these ingredients in a large jar, layer by layer, creating a colorful and nutrient-packed concoction. Once the jar is filled, she pours apple cider vinegar over the top, ensuring that all the ingredients are completely covered. The jar is then sealed with a canning lid and left to sit on the countertop for a whole month, with a daily swishing of the jar to release the nutrients from the vegetables and herbs.

Jill also provides us with some background on the whole food plant-based cooking show, which is crowdfunded and provides free weekly recipe videos and printable recipes on their website. She also discusses the importance of complementing the plant-based diet with essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s, and encourages viewers to try Complement Essential, a supplement that contains eight critical nutrients lacking from most plant-based diets.

This video not only provides a tutorial on creating a healthy vegan fire cider but also educates viewers on the importance of supplementing their plant-based diets for optimal health.

Let’s make some fire cider for cold and flu season welcome back to the whole food plant-based cooking show where we make plant-based cooking easy I’m Jill and we are going to make fire cider because the flu season and cold season is just around the corner so this is

Going to help you ward off some of that so there are many different ways that you could make this but essentially The Cider part is apple cider vinegar and you want to get a really good organic raw apple cider vinegar cuz that has the most nutrients in it and then

You want to select your uh your herbs and stuff things that are really fiery like hot peppers Ginger turmeric garlic cinnamon these things are really kind of fiery and it’s going to rev up your immune system and your digestive system and help you ward off sickness so you

Also need a big jar like this that has like a canning lid of some type and then we’re going to jump in so I I did one large red onion because the red onions have more nutrition in them than the white onion but you could

If all you have is white onion go ahead and use those but I’m just going to use the red so I’m putting those in first and the order doesn’t matter either I just like layering it so that you can kind of see each thing and to kind of make it a

Little bit pretty cuz this is going to be sitting on your countertop for quite a while so I’m going to go onions first and then I’m going to do uh this is ginger so I just washed it off really good and then I just slice it sliced it

Into slices so this is about a half a cup of sliced Ginger I kind of put that towards the outside cuz I really like how those little sliced pieces look okay then we’re going to go for the turmeric the same thing I just washed them really well and I sliced them in slices

You could also chop it up really small if you wanted to it would probably actually release more of its nutrients into that the fires cider but I just I think this is just so pretty seeing all the different colors and the layers in here so I try to kind

Of push the the little slices out towards the front you know towards the edge of the jar so that you can see it okay then I have hot peppers so I have one whole jalapeno and one sorrano pepper this is completely up to you how

Spicy you want to go you could do scotch bonuts or any kind of like habanero peppers if you can get them I’m going to go kind of middle of the line cuz jalapenos are a little bit milder sanos are a little bit hotter just to give it that really fiery uh

Burn same thing kind of layering them so you can see them a little bit then I have a whole cup of cranberries and I just found the Frozen bag of cranberries at the store and I sliced them in half while they were frozen cuz they’re easier to chop or easier to

Slice and that’s going to give it a the beautiful oops beautiful red color and they are just loaded with antioxidants okay then we have a one lemon and I got an organic lemon because we’re leaving the skins on if you don’t have if you can’t get a organic lemon make sure you

Scrub that the peel really well and I just sliced it pretty thin and I like to put it around you know same thing kind of layering it a little bit just so you can see it on the edge and then I’ll put the rest of the

Other pieces is kind of down in the center and you don’t have to cut off I’m going to put the ends too the ends of the lemons but I’ll put those in the center because you’re not going to see those oops and you don’t have to press down I

Wouldn’t press down you’re just layering it in there okay and then I have five cloves of garlic that I just peeled and I just kind of lightly mashed them a little bit so that the insides are exposed and they can you know that the nutrients will leak out into the

Cider then I have one teaspoon of pepper corns just going to sprinkle them down in there and two cinnamon sticks I kind of like to see those two so I’m going to go on the other side of that lemon stick it down in there stick it down there and then I

Have two Sprigs of Rosemary from my garden and then some fresh thyme those are both they’re just loaded with nutrients and antioxidants I’m just going to put those kind of towards the top I’m going to bend those a little bit I mean look at that isn’t that gorgeous so colorful and full of

Nutrients and then all you need to do I’m going to shake up this apple cider vinegar and we’re just going to pour over the top and you just want to make sure that everything is covered so even if you have to press you know like my lemons are sitting up a

Little bit High just going to press them down just a little bit just to make sure everything’s down in there because if you’re if stuff is sticking up above the layer of the apple cider vinegar it has a chance of molding and you don’t want that so we’re going to make sure that

It’s completely covered and you might even have to you know use a little bit more from another jar if this doesn’t completely cover everything but it looks like it’s going to make it yeah there we go all right right there all right now all that’s left to

Do is to put on your lid make sure you have a canning lid and just hand tighten it and then every day you’re going to set this on the countertop and every day you’re going to come up and just swish it around and that’s really just to

Ensure that um all of that stuff is going to stay below that level and it’s going to help release some of the the nutrients from those vegetables and herbs so you’re going to leave this on your countertop for a whole month so I’m going to clear this stuff out and I’m

Going to get my finished jar and I’ll show you how to strain it while we’re waiting for that I’d like to share some background on our show the whole Whole Food plant-based cooking show is crowdfunded which means these free weekly recipe videos along with our entire catalog of free printable recipes

By the time of a month and some cultures actually take the jar and they bury it in the ground for a month and then they they dig it up for like a special occasion which I thought that’s a pretty neat idea all right so I just have I

Have little canning um I don’t know what you call that uh funnel and then I just have a regular just a Sie type of strainer you can do it with a um like a a nutmilk bag or something like that too anything you have just so that it will

Catch all of the the fruits and herbs and stuff okay so there’s plenty left to do another jar I’m just going to show you just this is basically how I do it I would get another jar and then just put it in the strainer and then you know you

Can kind of press out you know press out your fruits and veggies and herbs just you get all of that juice out of there and this is great you know you can just you can just throw this on the compost some people actually eat it they put a little bit of different vinegar

They put it on their salads and stuff I’m not so much into that I’m really more about the liquid part so that’s how you do the straining and then you just same thing put a lid on just like that and put it in your fridge and this will keep for months

Because you’re only going to be really drinking about you know maybe a tablespoon or two or a little shot glass of it every day just to boost your immune system so I’m going to grab myself a little shot glass and I’ll meet you at the table for a taste all right
