Matt Thompson hide caption itoggle caption Matt Thompson Sustainable Eats & the Dancing Goat Gardens Communal Project I’ve never been pro-soda but now that I’m on my homegrown kick I’m discovering new old ways to make things. I posted last month on how to harness wild yeast to make your own soda using ingredients you can find at any grocers: So far we’ve made lemon soda and rootbeer (with the caveat that we used dried sarsparilla and wintergreen leaves found at Bob’s Homebrew in the U District for the root beer.) This spring the first fruit up is rhubarb which is a favorite of mine so I have lots of rhubarb plants. I decided to turn it into soda. To make this you will need a mess of rhubarb (maybe 5 or 6 nice sized stalks), a ginger bug, and some sugar. You can use just about any kind of sugar crystals but not honey since it may kill the wild yeast.

Perhaps not the most auspicious beginning for a serious relationship that has continued now for over a decade, but as somebody who spilled, and continues to spill, things on herself on a fairly regular basis, nothing to actively discourage me on my path to caffeine addiction.

Know your Whiskey: The Difference between Bourbon, Scotch, Rye, Irish I can’t tell you how many times someone has asked me “What’s the difference between Scotch and Whiskey”?

A Great Cup of Coffee It’s not hard to brew a great cup of coffee—at least, it shouldn’t be. There are only two ingredients: coffee and water. And there are only two firm rules: these ingredients must be combined and then, sometime later, separated. (In fact, this second rule is somewhat less firm: when professionals are evaluating coffee, they typically let the grounds settle at the bottom of the cup, and use a rounded spoon to scoop small mouthfuls from near the surface.) 37 Amazing Bathroom Designs That Fused with Nature So you like to relax in the bath?
