Pineapple Ginger Soda Recipe
This pineapple ginger soda recipe is naturally fermented, so it contains valuable probiotics for a healthy gut.
Servings: 4 People
- 48 oz Pineapple Juice (freshly juiced and strained, if possible)
- 0.5-1 oz Ginger Juice
- 1/4 cup Active Ginger Bug
In a large pitcher with a spout, pour the pineapple juice.
Mix in the ginger juice a little at a time, and taste until you like it. If you accidentally add too much ginger, you can add more pineapple juice or dilute with some water. Work slowly and carefully!
Add the ¼ cup ginger bug, mix well
Pour into tightly lidded jars. Leave at least an inch of space in a mason jar, 3-4 inches in a flip-top. Close and let it ferment for 1-3 days.
Check daily, and move to fridge once fizzy. Mine is always super fizzy in less than one!
Pineapple Juice: You can use freshly pressed juice of very ripe pineapple, or use canned or bottled. I highly recommend this organic pineapple juice but you can use regular pineapple juice as well. You don't want a pineapple juice with a bunch of additives.
Ginger Juice: I highly recommend juicing your own ginger, or blending 1.5-3 inches of ginger (to taste). Start with 1.5 inch, blend with some of the pineapple juice, strain, mix that juice with the rest of the pineapple juice and taste. Then blend and strain more ginger juice if desired. If you cannot source fresh ginger, try this ginger juice. Do not use powdered ginger.
Flip-top jars are the best jars to ensure a fizzy final product. Amazon now has inexpensive flip-top jars. Click here to check them out. I generally recommend the 8oz for children and 16oz for adults. I do at times use larger bottles then pour individual servings into a cup/glass.
