It’s that time of year again, and dandelions are everywhere. A few weeks ago I made a lost with a list of things to do with dandelions.
Naturally, a few days later I came across another idea that I would have added to the list if I’d thought if it: dandelion soda! I almost edited my post, but this soda turned out so good that I decided to make a separate post about it.
This drink isn’t carbonated the same way regular soda is. Instead, it uses a half cup of ginger bug starter which is made of sugar, water, and organic ginger root. It “captures” wild yeasts and bacteria that eat the sugar and emit carbon dioxide, giving it a fizz just like soda.
The starter and the soda are fairly easy to make and a fun project to do with your kids. This recipe comes from Teri at Homestead Honey. Follow the link below to check it out.
