Natural Ginger Ale Recipe - Homemade Fermented Probiotic Drink

Natural Ginger Ale Recipe - Homemade Fermented Probiotic Drink

It turns out that soda hasn’t always been the high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavor concoction in an aluminum can that we know today. For hundreds of years (and probably much longer) cultures around the world have made various forms of naturally fermented “sodas” from sweetened herbal teas or fruit juice mixes. These natural fermented drinks contained beneficial enzymes and probiotics to boost health and were a far cry from the unhealthy versions we have today. This version uses a fermented ginger culture to create a naturally fizzy soda! Ginger is and delicious herb that has been used in many cultures for its health-boosting properties.
Homemade Ginger Ale Homemade Ginger Ale It’s funny, but I most definitely swear by ginger ale. If I have a cold…stomach ache…headache….any other kind of ache…or if I just need a nice refreshing beverage…ginger ale cures it all for me. Who knows…it could just be a mental thing, but I instantly feel better after having a cold glass of ginger ale. It’s crisp and delicious, and I can drink it at any hour of the day. I was so excited when I found a homemade recipe that I had to try it out. If you are a ginger ale fan, no doubt you are going to love this.

Thai Lemongrass and Ginger Iced Tea Thai Lemongrass and Ginger Iced Tea Last week I helped out at a Thai cooking class at The Hutong taught by my friend Sandra of Savour Asia. As we sat down to a meal of mango salad, pork laap, and red curry chicken, I realized how much I missed having lemongrass as a kitchen staple. In New York I could easily take the train to Chinatown whenever I wanted to cook with lemongrass. In Beijing, Sanyuanli market has several stalls selling the aromatic stalky grass, but is such a trek from my apartment that it doesn't enter my cooking consciousness at a moment's notice. After scooping the last of my laap mu into my mouth, I decided I must must must get lemongrass that day and make iced tea. Lemongrass and ginger iced tea is my drink of choice with Thai food if I want something lighter than iced tea with condensed milk.
Homemade Almond Milk Homemade Almond Milk The following article was written by Kaycee Basset and originally appeared on Vegan Machine.com. Almond milk is my favorite kind of milk!

We wait all year for this: fingers stained with cherry juice, arms covered in bramble scratches, and countertops cluttered with canning jars. We can, dry, freeze, jam, pickle, and preserve summer, and we’ve gotten pretty good at it. But there’s another way to bottle summer’s bounty. It’s called a shrub. Shrubs date back to the 18th century. Their name comes not from leafy bushes but from sharab, an Arabic word meaning syrup, and sharbat, a Hindi word for an aromatic syrup made from fruit, or herb and flower extracts, that is stirred into water and served over ice.
