Craft Your Own Firecider

$40

with Katie Munn

Calendar Jan 25, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Though not imparted with any actual mystical powers, fire cider truly is magical in its own right. This tonic is revered by herbalists for its ability to support the immune system and shorten the duration of cold and flu symptoms if they occur. It’s an apple cider vinegar infusion containing powerful immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral properties. It is especially pleasant and easy to incorporate into your daily diet to help boost the immune system. In one session Katie will guide you through the process of making your own Fire Cider to take home, allow to mature, then use as a preventative during winter’s onslaught. $10 Material fee payable to the instructor on the night of class. No discounts.
