FIRE CIDER

Herbalist Ehris Urban of Grounded Holistic Wellness led a class in Woodbury recently on the origins and benefits of the popular herbal tonic known as fire cider. Those attending learned the history of herbal remedies from Ms. Urban’s mother, Velya Jancz-Urban, the medicinal benefits of fire cider’s ingredients, then got to create their own concoction based on pre-prepared recipes. Composed principally of apple cider vinegar, onions, garlic and horseradish, fire cider is said to prevent cold and flu symptoms and combat a variety of illnesses in other ways. Additional herbs can be added to alter the drink’s effects and change (or improve) its flavor. Go to www.voicesnews.com to watch a video of this event and others like it. (Eder photo)
