Glad you like the recipe! I appreciate the tips and recommendations. The ice cube idea is a great one. I agree, the smell of cooking ginger is a good one. I love using it in stir fry too. An excellent herb!

OK, I prepared some ginger syrup.

I peeled the ginger, grated it into a saucepan added 2 cups of water and set to boil then simmered. I went with around 10 minutes rather than the 5 so I could extract as much of the good ginger out as I could.

I strained the syrup and let cool then put it into an ice cube tray (the recipe fit the tray exactly).

Now I have ginger syrup that will keep for quite a while in the freezer.

When I want some ginger ale I'll just pop out a ginger syrup cube and place it in a glass, add a little fresh lemon and a tsp of honey, add the seltzer water and I've got it ... as the cube melts the ginger will mix and I'll have a nice cold glass of homemade ginger ale.

Thanks for the recipe, ginger smelled good cooking, I think putting the syrup in the freezer this way will be more practical for me since I won't drink it every day, just as I want/ need it.

All the more reason to use this recipe and make your own:

Store bought ginger: ... BAD ... BAD!!

Ingredients of Canada Dry Ginger Ale: (Note: High Fructose Corn Syrup is Second Ingredient ... e.g. there's a LOT of it)

CARBONATED WATER, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL FLAVORS, GREEN TEA, SODIUM BENZOATE (PRESERVATIVE), ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA (TO PROTECT FLAVOR).

Note: Diet Canada Dry is Not Much Better with Aspartame.

Article about Canada Dry Ginger Ale

 

vs:

 

Home Made Ginger Ale: ... GOOD ... GOOD!

Ingredients:

1 cup peeled, finely chopped ginger
2 cups purified water
raw honey (optional) - (Less is better here, Fructose in Honey is not as bad as High Fructose but still not good in large quanties)
sparkling water
1 lemon, juiced

Hey Tig

That Ginger Ale sounds great for us in the frozen tundra. Peeling the ginger sounds like the only work but well worth the effort.

Keep the homemade drinks coming, they can really hit the spot on cold or hot days.

Hi Tig,

I've always be a fan of natural remedies where possible ... this sounds like a great one for the ailments that you mentioned in the original post.

Sounds delicious too. I'll have to give this a try.

 

Thanks,

Lnx

9 moths ago my triglycerides were like 248. Doc wanted me to take lipitor I refused. Little diet and exercise it went down to 143. 3 months later. Kept it up and started eating crystalized ginger for desert and a treat. Last time I saw the doctor my triglycerides went down to 79. Only thing I did different was the ginger. Looked it up and yep the ginger is known to do that.

I found this homemade Ginger Ale recipe and thought it might be helpful for those suffering from nausea and stomach upset. It will certainly be a healthier form versus the store bought brand and uses real ginger. Thanks to American Patriot Health for the recipe.

Homemade Ginger Ale

In traditional holistic medicine, ginger has long been held in high esteem. It is frequently used to treat a variety of ailments including nausea, stomach upset, arthritis and heart disease. It also reduces chronic inflammation, pain and migraine headaches. And of all the ways to consume ginger, homemade ginger ale may be the easiest and most delicious.

Ginger has been used in Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years. The active compounds in ginger that provide its healing power are gingerol and shogaol, known to be beneficial in treating ulcers, gout and the complications of diabetes. It is also high in potassium, a mineral vital for correct heart function, and maganese, which increases resistance to disease. Manganese also strengthens the bodys circulatory system and the lining of the heart. Other minerals are phosphorus, sodium, iron, calcium and zinc.

Silicon is another component of ginger. It supports healthy skin, hair, teeth and nails. Ginger contains vitamins A, C., E. and B complex. It is high in beta-carotene.

Research studies have proven that ginger reduces muscle pain and back pain. For women, ginger reduces menstrual pain. Science has demonstrated gingers anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, proving it inhibits the formation of inflammatory compounds.

One of the best known uses of ginger is the treatment of nausea. Ginger is more effective in treating nausea and indigestion than many commercial antacids. For cold and flu symptoms, ginger is as effective as many antihistamines and decongestants. A good recipe for colds and coughing can be made by brewing ginger and tamarind leaves in hot water, then crushing them and adding some honey.

Now youre convinced of the benefit of using ginger, try this great recipe for Homemade Ginger Ale:

Ingredients:

1 cup peeled, finely chopped ginger
2 cups purified water
raw honey (optional)
sparkling water
1 lemon, juiced

Preparation:

Boil 2 cups of water, and add ginger. Reduce the heat to medium low, then let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and strain.

To serve, use one part ginger syrup and three parts sparkling water. Serve on the rocks. Sweeten the drink to your taste with raw honey or stevia, and add a little lemon juice. Enjoy!
