Since I’m just crazy about making my own ginger beer after trying the basic recipe I posted a few weeks ago, I’ve got a scheme.
It goes like this:
I make some ginger beer. YOU all make some ginger beer. Then we add a bunch of different varietals to see what wonderful new brews we can come up with. Take a photo of your brews-in-progress, and I’ll post them here. If it turns out to be a winner, I’ll add it to the list so others can enjoy it, too. And even if you’re not able to make your own Ginger Beer, help us brainstorm some new varieties!
Tried and True Delicious Add-ins:
- Blueberries – crush 1/2 cup per gallon, simmer with ginger, strain before bottling. Beautiful color is an added bonus!
- Mint – just a few leaves per gallon add wonderful subtle flavor!
- Rhubarb – 4 cups chopped, boil along with the ginger.
In true tournament style, Chelsea is making this challenge into a giveaway. For each varietal entry you submit (photo and recipe!), you’ll get one entry for a drawing for a signed, personalized copy of the cookbook!
Just submit your photos on the Facebook page to enter. Deadline is November 1!
