DIRECTIONS

  • Place ginger pulp into a large, heat-proof container that is enameled or made of glass or stainless steel.
  • Cover with 8 cups of boiling water. Cover loosely with a cloth and set aside in a warm place.
  • After an hour or so, strain the liquid through a cloth, squeezing pulp to extract all the flavor.
  • Stir in lime or desired fruit juice, cinnamon stick, half the cloves and 8 cups of cold water.
  • Let liquid sit another hour, in the sun if possible. *This allows the starch from the ginger to settle.
  • Pour mixture gently through a cloth to strain it, trying not to disturb any sediment at the bottom. Strain again if necessary.
  • Stir in remaining cloves and sugar, then transfer the ginger beer to a jar and refrigerate.
