Fire Cider

I'm a historian and fermenter of ideas, of skills, of foods.
My medical training included the opportunity to study from original sources in the worlds of botany, herbalism and medicine.
So many ideas reoccur in history. based on the items available for a culture to use for medicine.
Apples grow just about everywhere.
