Shtetl Skills: DIY Fire Cider

Are you interested in living more sustainably? Do you want to learn a new skill? In each monthly Shtetl Skills workshop, you’ll be able to take home new skills from local professional farmers, herbalists, bakers, and chefs that align with the themes of the Hebrew calendar and connect to living more sustainably.

During the Hebrew month of Cheshvan in Philadelphia, it can be difficult to rally. The days are shorter, we grow tired of our PSLs, and our communities are plagued by the flu. This is an opportunity to turn to medicines around us: wild herbs we collected in the summer, or the food that surrounds us in the kitchen. Onions, garlic, ginger, turmeric, thyme, rosemary, oregano, chili pepper, horseradish, vinegar, honey, vegetables, and herb, and many other spices are all extremely potent medicines. With concoctions like fire cider, onion or garlic honey, and infused oils, we can support our immune systems through the onslaught of winter’s ills.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to make your own fire cider that will last you for the winter, learn about different natural remedies to support our bodies during cold/flue season, and we’ll do a shot (or two) pre-made fire cider for an extra boost..l’chaim!
