Ginger (and Turmeric) Ale

I made some Ginger and Turmeric Ale today. I added the turmeric because I have so much and of course it's so good for you.....and the colour is pretty. I've used the recipe from Nourishing Traditions, although I didn't have enough limes, so subbed lemons - my neighbour gave me some yesterday.  It'll be interesting to see what it tastes like - It tasted okay fresh, so I hope it ferments a little bit!

My next big thing to try is Kombucha. I bought some ready made at the Real Food Festival in Maleny and it's really nice. They were also selling kits, but I missed out on one. I'm going to try and get one over the net - or at least the mushroom. I'll let you know how I get on!

We're always looking for a refreshing drink at lunch time. I have made bush lime cordial for years and try and keep some limes in the freezer, but we didn't get many last year, so I'm all out! I might make some lemon cordial with the rest of the lemons I have. I peeled the lemons that I squeezed for the ale, and have it soaking in vinegar. I want to make a nice smelling lemon vinegar, as I use vinegar to clean benches etc.

  1. I love Kombucha. Took a little getting used to, but I grew to really enjoy it. I've never had homemade ginger ale, but it sounds delicious!
