Give it all a good stir, cover using a piece of natural parchment paper under the lid to keep the vinegar from touching the metal, or use a plastic lid if you have one. and set it in the back of your fridge for four - six weeks, remembering to shake the jar a few seconds every day. Mark your calendar so you remember!
When the waiting is over, take the jar out of the fridge and strain contents through cheesecloth and into a bowl. Allow to strain several hours or overnight (patience is a virtue, remember). After several hours, squeeze and wring the contents of the cheesecloth well to get every last beneficial drop.
Add honey and stir to ensure it's well incorporated.
Pour the contents of the bowl into a clean jar (the recipe above yields approximately a quart). You may keep it in your cupboard as you would vinegar or in the fridge if you prefer it cold.
To use your fire cider, take a tablespoon a day or add to a large glass of water (start with a teaspoon if a tablespoon is too strong for you at first). If you’re sick or feel a cold or flu coming on, use two or three tablespoons a day.
Feel free to make this recipe your own with optional add-ins like cinnamon, orange and grapefruit.
