Ginger and Olena

Blending Technique:

  • Blend in two separate batches
  • Add water to equal 1 gallon total
  • Add 1/2 pint of honey, splitting between blender runs

***Wait until after fermentation to add 1/2 Pint of Lemon Juice as it can inhibit the culture of the ginger probiotics.

The lemon is optional but will keep the brew from going ballistic in the fridge.  It is rare, but one exploded in in a friends refrigerator so beware.

Strain Blended mixture.

Pour through a funnel into jars.

Store in a warm place and let ferment for a few days…

I store above my stove so that the temperature can enhance the fermentation.  Within a few days bubbles should begin to appear. Be careful “burping” the mixture as the ginger probiotics are powerful and this mixture can quickly become explosive. Be sure to store in the refrigerator before explosive phase has occurred. Storing in the refrigerator will slow down the fermentation process.

Hawaiian Turmeric Sunshine Juice fermenting above the stove. Finished 1 gallon brew in 4 quart-sized jars. Turn gently, if desired, however not disturbing may help with fermentation.

Warning!!! Once fermented, “Burp” SLOWLY, a little at a time, or you will have a big orange mess everywhere.

This recipe was shared with me by a dear friend.  I suggest you do the same.

*Note that if left in the fridge for longer periods, this elixir can become quite potent… and slightly alcoholic. We refer to this substance as, “Rocket Fuel.”
