Fire Cider Workshop

This workshop is hosted by the Sousa family in their home kitchen in Braddock, Pennsylvania.  Please message Alison via the CONTACT page for details.

Fire Cider is a traditional folk remedy used by people over the ages to improve digestion and build seasonal immunity. This tasty remedy is an oxymel, an herbal medicine made with apple cider vinegar, raw honey and herbs that promotes respiratory health and warms up the body. Just a tablespoon a day keeps sore throats at bay, and stokes the fires of digestion, which slows during winter.
Winter is the perfect time to make your own Fire Cider. Alison Garber of Native Apothecary will take you on a two hour long journey into folk medicine. We'll be making this traditional remedy from scratch, and you'll go home with your own jar full of spicy delight. A fire cider tasting will also be enjoyed. Cost for this class is $20. Please bring a clean, quart sized mason jar with secure lid, and your beautiful self.
