Fire Cider-Making Workshop. Sat February 16th. 11:00am-12:30pm. At the Northampton Winter Farmers' Market
67 Conz St, Northampton, MA. By Donation (proceeds to benefit Tradition Not Trademark).
Fire Cider is a beloved traditional herbal folk remedy that can provide both potent protection from winter colds and flus, and also effective support and treatment when sickness hits. A wonderful example of food as medicine, it's a sweet and savory combination of common household ingredients like onion, garlic, and ginger, combined with raw apple cider vinegar and honey. We'll learn all about the medicinal properties of the ingredients, the wonderful versatility of Fire Cider and how to use it, and we'll make some together in class. Participants will leave with their own jar of Fire Cider (bring a glass jar!). Come see how fun and easy kitchen medicine can be! Pre-registration Required! Email email@example.com to register.
