Recipe Tools


1. Mix starter ingredients with 3/4 pint of warm water in a glass jar.

2. Stir, cover and leave in a warm place for 24 hours.

3. This is your starter plant. Feed the plant with 1 teaspoon each of ground ginger and sugar each day.

4. After 7 days strain through a fine sieve. Dissolve the sugar in 2 pints of water.

5. Add the lemon juice and the liquid from the plant.

6. Dilute with 5 pints of water, mix well and store in corked bottles for at least 7 days.

7. Use strong bottles as pressure may build up which will cause thin bottles to explode.

8. For the same reason use corked bottles rather than those with a more secure closure that will not give under pressure.
