    Carrot Ketchup from Lilsipper on the Fire Cider Blog

    Ketchup that's tomato free?! For all those avoiding nightshades, have a tomato allergy, or just want a healthy twist to the universally used, sugar loaded sauce, then try my CARROT KETCHUP for game day (and every day after! lol) It's the flippn' bomb!

    Kickin' Egg Salad

    August is National Sandwich Month

    It's hot. Sticky humid wilting weather. And we're definitely not even looking in the direction of our ovens, so we all can get behind a cool nourishing sandwich right about now, yes?

    Cue the Egg Salad! If that sounds a little blasé to you, perhaps you've never thought to add a splash of Fire Cider to the mix...instant flava!

    A perfect pair- creamy egg salad and Fire Cider.

    If you don't have a tried-and-true in your arsenal, we're fans of this Food Network standard. Or how about adding bacon and green olives, like in this Bon Appetit version?

     

    Whether it's your Nana's recipe you loved when you were 8, or something you created just to suit your tastes- seriously, add a splash of Fire Cider. 

    You could even plan ahead and pickle your eggs in Fire Cider; then use those spicy, golden pub-favorites in your salad. (Fire Cider staffer Heather has a great recipe that we'll be sharing soon, so stay tuned!) Guaranteed, you're not bored any more. And, you can wait to turn on the oven for another day. Win-win!

    Oh yes, add those sprouts, seasonal tomato slices, and leafy green lettuce. This one is served between two slices of rye.

    French Fries Require Fire Cider

    August 19 is National Potato Day and National Hot & Spicy Food Day

    This just seemed too good to pass up. Spicy potatoes are so up our alley that we've made them our roomies for ever. And while we already spend our Sunday brunches together, jammies-clad, cozied up with Fire Cider on our hash browns and homefries, we also love it on our fries all day long.

    So, a quick stop to Blueberry Hill Market Cafe in New Lebanon, NY, later, and we have both an order of regular fries and sweet potato fries (who wants to choose just one?), ready for a generous glug of Fire Cider.

    Malt vinegar is a pretty standard french fry pairing, so it isn't a stretch to imagine how great Fire Cider works... it's sweet, spicy, tart, and fried deliciousness.

     

    Pre-Fire Cider fries.

     

    Post-drizzle. Turned out we weren't generous enough here and had to go another round after this photo.

     

    We ate them all. No shame. It was really hard to decide whether the regular fries or sweet potato fries went better with the Fire Cider, so we had to continue for many rounds of tastings. Still undecided.

    We encourage you to join us today in a toast to potatoes and hot & spicy food with fries covered with Fire Cider. 

    Oh Baby! Drizzle Fire Cider on Oysters

    August 5 is National Oyster Day, y'all!

    We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than to take a staff outing to Eat on North's Raw Bar for some divine Wellfleet Oysters. Heck. Yeah.

    We don't go anywhere without a bottle of Fire Cider, so out of the purse (don't tell us you don't have a bottle in your purse) and onto the bar it went. Now we're ready for those oysters to arrive.

    Oh man, our anticipation is through the roof!

    We've got oysters!...Look, look!

    Here we go...

    D'oh! Bethany has a slight miss of the target.
    A drizzle and slurp later, and we were on our way to an elevated state of peace and contentment. 

    So much documentation happening.
    Try a little dash of Fire Cider on your oysters today, and see what we mean. You won't want to have them any other way!

    Bootiful!

    SLURP.
