Our recipe is from Wild Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz. I really like this little book which is full of great information on fermenting for the beginner. And since I’m a beginner, and you might be a beginner, it’s perfect!
I recommend using glass jars simply because metal and plastic can the process of fermentation can leach things out of your container. Glass or ceramic are best. A jug like this…and I’ll be picking up a few cases of these next week from our honey jar people so you can get one from me next week if you need one. They’ll be about $4.25 each and will have a lid. You can also get one from the grocery store that is filled with apple juice and just reuse it!
On to the recipe!!
- 3 cups honey
- 3qts water (remember to use de-chlorinated and you can see how to do that here)
- 1 cup Ginger Bug (learn to make one here)
- 1-gallon jar or ceramic crock
- 1-gallon glass jug or carboy
- Balloon (not Mylar lol) or airlock
- Bottles or jars that can be sealed
- A funnel for bottling
I’ll go on through the whole process of how to make it soon but since not everyone has picked up their honey we have a little time and I’m getting ready for the show this weekend. In the meantime, get your equipment together and start your Ginger Bugs!
