|Fire Cider, day 1|
The directions were a little vague on how much cayenne pepper to add. Because I only had some dried peppers from 2014 on hand, I liberally added 2 whole peppers. Oops.
It's supposed to sit for 3-4 weeks but I was feeling stuffy today so I decided to sample it to see how it was going. The taste wasn't too off-putting but I can attest that the "fire" in the name is apt! Wowee. It wasn't so hot that I couldn't drink it but I believe I will halve the amount of pepper next time!
Week 3 will end on January 8 and I will begin a daily regimen of the cider then. And since I have a better grasp on the taste, I can safely start a second batch now without worrying about wasting ingredients on something I won't drink.
So how about you? What homemade concoctions do you use for health purposes? I'll let you know how the fire cider works for me. If you've used it, please share your experience.
