A mix to make ginger beer. My husband and I both like it, but the supermarket brands have lots of sugar and other unsavoury things added, so naturally, I was quite excited to try making my own.
I added water to it (1.5 lt) and then I had to cook it until reduced in half:
After this, it needed to be strained:
and sugar had to be added, too. I tried to reduce the suggested amount (150g), but believe me, you'll need all of it to make it taste more or less decent.
It still has a very strong taste, but is great for a hot summer day! Have you tried some new project this summer? Feel free to share!
