Side note! 

I’m not sure about you but I’m always confused about what ginger beer actually is or is it just me?

Is it or is it not alcoholic – so here you go according to Wiki – The official definition:

Traditional ginger beer is a naturally sweetened and carbonated, usually non-alcoholic beverage.

It is produced by the natural fermentation of prepared ginger spice, yeast and sugar.

Its origins date from the colonial spice trade with the Orient and the sugar-producing islands of the Caribbean.

Ginger is such a great flavour if you get the balance right!

Do you like ginger?

What actually is it? Well according to Wikipedia –

Ginger is a flowering plant whose rhizome, ginger root or simply ginger, it is widely used as a spice or as a folk medicine.

It is also a herbaceous perennial which grows annual pseudo stems. These grow to  about a meter tall and bear narrow leaf blades.

So will you give it a try? It’s really good!
