JEAN'S HOMEMADE SOFT DRINK RECIPES
3 quarts mashed raspberries
1 quart vinegar (good vinegar)
Pour vinegar over the raspberries and let stand 24 hours. To each pint of liquid add 3/4 lb. sugar. Boil for about 1/2 hour. Remove from heat and skim clear, then in sterilized bottles, seal tightly, and keep in cool place. When wanting a drink add 1 tbsp to 8 oz glass of cold water.
2 gal warm water
2 oz bruised ginger root
2 lbs sugar
2 lemons - juice only
1 tbsp cream tarter
1 yeast cake or pkg in cold weather, 2/3 of pkg in summer
Mix together and let stand in stone jar, covered for 24 hours. Strain and bottle. Bottles must be sealed tightly.
1 gallon water
2 cups sugar
1 cup vinegar
1 tsp ginger
Stir the ingredients together well and mix with water. Then keep cool. NOTE: Try using one cup sugar. Some recipes call for molasses (1 cup instead of sugar).
This thirst-quenching drink is made for the men working in the fields. Easy to make and surprising refreshing.
I also have some homemade wine recipes, but I don't know if you would be interested.
