    From: “The Africa News Cookbook, African Cooking for Western Kitchens”. This recipe produces a strong concentrate that can be diluted with equal parts water or sparkling water for drinking, but many people like it just as it is, over ice.

    1. 1
      Place ginger pulp into a large, heat-proof container that is enameled or made of glass or stainless steel.
    2. 2
      Cover with 8 cups of boiling water. Cover loosely with a cloth and set aside in a warm place.
    3. 3
      After an hour or so, strain the liquid through a cloth, squeezing pulp to extract all the flavor.
    4. 4
      Stir in lime or desired fruit juice, cinnamon stick, half the cloves and 8 cups of cold water.
    5. 5
      Let liquid sit another hour, in the sun if possible. *This allows the starch from the ginger to settle.
    6. 6
      Pour mixture gently through a cloth to strain it, trying not to disturb any sediment at the bottom. Strain again if necessary.
    7. 7
      Stir in remaining cloves and sugar, then transfer the ginger beer to a jar and refrigerate.

      This was pretty good. Tom choose to make this for ZWT4 because it reminded him of what he used to get as a kid (yes, here in Texas). He said it was a little like it, but what he used to get was out of a can, so he's sure this is much better. Both of the kids thought it was good. I LOVED the smell of him making it. Overall, we think it's good - it IS very refreshing though... a definitely "ahhhh!" as you drink it :)
