There has been a nasty cold going around the Berkshires, and one by one it has taken us out. First Dan, then Sean, Amy, and Dana. I blame Dan’s kids for being cute but efficient plague carriers. Anyway, we’ve been hitting the amped up virgin Fire Cider hot toddys pretty hard over the last week- and I’m happy to say we’ve been feeling much better!
-1 -2 Tablespoons of Fire Cider
-Juice of 1/4 – 1/2 lemon
-1 T honey, raw, local honey is best.
-A healthy dose of ginger (We use 1T frozen ginger juice. A 1/2 tsp ginger powder or 1T diced fresh ginger works too)
-Hot water or tea to fill your favorite mug
Our full arsenal of anti-ick fighting home remedies includes Osha tincture, Echinacea tincture, oil of oregano (rub it on the bottom of your feet or get capsules), raw honey, Fire Cider, ginger juice, lemons, neti pot and of course, some Berkshire Bourbon for when you finally start to feel better!
This Sunday is the last SoWa Market in Boston for the season so make sure to stop by and see Sean for your free Fire Cider sample! He’ll also be handing out samples on Friday, 10/24 at Foster’s Supermarket in Greenfield, MA, 3-6 pm and on Saturday, 10/25 at the Fruit Center Marketplace in Hingham, MA 11 am-4 pm
