Ginger Beer

I’m sharing a new addiction that Brendan of Endless Simmer introduced me to: ginger beer. Yes, this is a baking blog, so I should leave the beer talk to others, but then I’ve never been a rule follower.

I am fairly good at recognizing my limitations. So let me say one thing and one thing only: If you are late to the ginger beer party like me – think ginger chew meets beer.

Aside from drinking this, I also got busy working it into a cocktail popsicle (coming soon) and it will also be finding its way in between some butter and sugar-stay tuned.

Obviously, no recipe. If you are wondering why the apples? Well like any inexperienced bartender, but lover of cocktails, it was a random test. Guess what – it’s pretty fantastic. The apple gives the beer a nice soft bite of tart sweetness-subtle but definitely noticeable.

Enjoy your weekend and I”ll see you Sunday for a full dose of fat, sugar and butter.

    Yum, I’ll have to put some apple in my next ginger beer. Looking forward to the popsicle recipe. You should have a go at brewing some, it’s really easy! I have a recipe on my blog. Abby

    I am with you on the ginger beer obsession… some of my favorite drinks (Moscow Mule, Pim’s Cup, Dark ‘n Stormy) have ginger beer and I love a place that makes their own. Such a fabulous post, Naomi! Cheers!

    Ginger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice.[5] Young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste. They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes. They can also be steeped in boiling water to make ginger tea, to which honey is often added; sliced orange or lemon fruit may also be added. Ginger can also be made into candy, or ginger wine which has been made commercially since 1740.`

    All the best
