With its garlicky heat and vibrant flavor, fire cider is a traditional tonic that promises to boost the immune system and support your health through the winter months. And it's super simple to make, all you need is a handful of ingredients, apple cider vinegar and honey.
Layer the ginger, onion, garlic, horseradish and jalapeño into a quart-sized jar with the star anise and cinnamon stick. Cover with apple cider vinegar, adding additional vinegar to cover the contents of the jar as necessary.
Seal the jar, and store it away from direct sunlight at least 1 month and up to 6 weeks. Shake daily.
Strain the vinegar, discarding the solids. Next, stir in the honey until fully dissolved. Store at room temperature up to 6 months and in the fridge up to 18 months.
