We’ve tried the humidifiers, the cold medicine, and we’re getting frustrated with the lack of results. Whenever winter rears its freezing little head around the corner, our bodies are the first to feel it and all they feel is sick. Luckily, Martha Stewart has a natural remedy up her sleeve that may make the sick feeling go away — and no, it’s not a delicious cocktail.

On Jan 3, Stewart shared the must-have recipe to keep in stock all the time in 2023. She posted the photo of the tonic with the caption, “Have you tried fire cider yet? A longtime favorite in the herbal community, our editors have been fans for years. Our recipe includes tangy, sweet vinegar infused with vegetables, herbs, spices, and honey. It’s commonly used as an anti-inflammatory and digestion-stimulating tonic, and to boost natural health processes. Grab the recipe at the link in bio to try it today. 📷: @chwhat.”

Stewart’s bringing some home remedies to our kitchen-based repertoire — and we’re loving it. Between the cold weather nipping at us and everyone getting sick, we’ll take anything we can get when trying to get the sick feeling away.

Infused with vegetables, herbs, spices, and honey, this cider tonic is perfect for anyone in the family feeling under the weather. This folk remedy uses ingredients like rosemary, ginger, lemons, oranges, onions, and apple cider vinegar, to name a few.

The two-step tonic recipe starts with getting a resealable glass container — because this recipe can last up to three weeks — and ends with stirring in the honey.

Now Stewart has a few things to point out with the recipe, one of which being that you can add turmeric into the honey for increased benefits. And you may wonder how to go about taking this and it’s simple. Either dilute it with water and drink it in a shot glass daily or put it on a salad.
