 Categories: Beverages, African, Vegan, Moosewood
      Yield: 3 Quarts
      6 c  -Boiling water
      1 c  Ginger root;fresh, peeled &
      1 c  Sugar
      2 ts Cloves, whole

  "Many variations of homemade ginger beers (soft drinks) are brewed
  all over subSaharan Africa. Fresh ginger makes a spicy drink, cooling
  in summer, warming in winter and always refreshing and energizing.
  Fruit juices other than the citrus called for below, make interesting
  variations in its flavour. When using other juices, I always add the
  juice of a couple of lemons or limes. This recipe makes a concentrate
  that can be diluted with plain or sparkling water."
  Pour the boiling water over the grated ginger root, sugar, cloves and
  cinnamon in a large nonreactive pot or bowl (enamel, glass or
  stainless steel). Cover and set aside in a warm place, in the sun if
  possible , for at least an hour. Strain the liquid through a fine
  sieve or cloth. Add the juices and water. Set aside in a warm place
  for another hour or so. Gently strain the liquid again, taking care
  not to disturb the sediment at the bottom. Store in the refrigerator
  in a large nonreactive container. A glass gallon jar or jug works
  well. Serve warm, chilled or on ice, either as is or diluted with
  water or sparkling water. A squeeze of fresh lime juice in each glass
  of ginger drink is "the cat's meow".
