    brwnskinnedlady's Note:

    Home-made non-alcoholic ginger drinks are common throughout much of Africa, especially Western Afican. In Central Africa, West African shopkeepers often sell their homemade ginger drink, sometimes in recycled vegetable-oil bottles. These ginger drinks are much stronger than any ginger ale soda. They can be enjoyed chilled over ice, or diluted with cold water

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Carefully remove and discard the ginger root's outer layer.
    2. 2
      Pound the ginger root to a pulp and place in a large ovenproof glass mixing bowl or stainless steel container.
    3. 3
      In a teakettle heat six cups of water to a boil.
    4. 4
      Pour water over the ginger, cover with a lid or a clean cloth.
    5. 5
      Put the mixture in a warm place. A sunny spot on a tabletop in front of a window is a good place on a hot day; an oven that has been slightly heated then turned off is a good place on a cold day. Wait one hour.
    6. 6
      Place a clean cheesecloth or a paper towel in a strainer and pour the the mixture through it into a large jar or pitcher (or two jars or pitchers as necessary).
    7. 7
      Squeeze the cloth to extract all the liquid from the ginger root. Mix in the citrus juice, sugar, and spices.
    8. 8
      Fill the jar with lukewarm water to make a gallon.
    9. 9
      Return the mixture to a warm spot and wait another hour.
    10. 10
      Strain the ginger beer once more and refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice.
