Real Ginger Ale

From Nourishing Traditions cookbook

Yield: 2 quarts


  • 3/4 cup ginger, peeled and finely chopped or grated
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup rapadura (natural organic sugar)
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup whey or kefir grains
  • 2 quarts filtered water


This is a most refreshing drink, taken in small amounts with meals and as a pick-me-up after outside work in the sun.

Place all ingredients in a 2 quart jug. Stir well and cover tightly. Leave at room temperature for 2-3 days before transferring to the refrigerator. This will keep several months well chilled.

To serve, strain into a glass. Ginger ale may be mixed with carbonated water and is best sipped warm rather than gulped down cold.
