Non-alcoholic Elaine. Ginger cordial (you can do turmeric) with carbonated water (I use soda streamed water, you could use mineral water, tonic or soda water).
Now what is Ginger spritzer? Alcoholic? If it's not alcoholic, would Turmeric work?
I have been experimenting with ginger. I'll do a clip soon about ginger spritzer and cordial. I'll have some on offer at the garden visit.
Later on, I'll do one on making a traditional ginger beer bug and the subsequent beer.
Oh you evil man....
The 23 liters of Passion wine has finally finished fermenting and has already cleared, so I siphoned it off into another 23 liter bottle and topped up with a 750 ml bottle from a previous batch. We had the tailings with a chilli meal tonight. They went well together.
I think that's a good philosophy Elaine, we were blessed with the ability to see colour, taste bitter etc. and observe changes. so it would be a shame not to use these senses to keep our own selves safe. You get to feed thousands of your own livestock when you put it into the compost :)
More Chemistry than I have ever studied, Rob! I wonder was the beetroot canned in Australia? Not that we are naturally perfect ;-) I look at foods that just don't look right and think 'compost'. Not having chooks nor anyone close with them, compost is the next destination.
Thanks everyone. I'll bring both bottles to the next GV, unless, Andy, living close, you would like to come round and pick them up.
Boiled the Rosella and strained and then in freezer when mixed with alcohol turned to jelly like pectin test .
If you are on blood thinners i think Rosella will have an effect on that medication.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion. It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
