Chop or dice all of your veggies.
Place sprigs of herbs into a wide mouth mason jar first.
Add all the veggies into jar.
Press veggies down firmly.
Zest lemon. Add to jar.
Squeeze lemon juice over veggies.
Cover with apple cider vinegar. Make sure all the veggies are below the level of the liquid. You can use a fermenting weight for this or a wedge of onion that can be pressed into the jar below the level of the vinegar.
Place a plastic lid on the concoction. If you don’t have a plastic lid, use parchment paper over the top of the jar. Then screw on a regular mason jar lid.
Put your jar in a dark space. Check on it every couple of days to make sure nothing is molding.
After 30 days, strain out the veggies. Keep the Fire Cider liquid in a jar in the fridge (again avoiding metal lids). It will keep for at least 6 months.
The remaining veggies can be added to stir fries.
