Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 2 tsp ginger root with the skin on, grated or chopped-it doesn't matter.
- 2 tsp cane sugar
- 1 Cup water
Grate or chop unpeeled ginger root. In a glass jar, place grated ginger and sugar. Pour water over all to cover. Stir well. Leave in a warm spot and cover. Stir each day. On second day, mixture should be bubbly. If not used, feed fermented mixture by adding ginger and sugar in above amounts. There is no specific measurement here. Fermenting is not an exact science. Just remember to feed your ginger bug with sugar and add water as needed. You can slow the ginger bug by placing in the refrigerator. If so, feed it only once a week to keep it healthy.
After you use your starter, add more water/ sugar to the ginger.
