ROOT BEER, SPRUCE BEER, GINGER SODA

ROOT BEER

1 gallon water

1-1/2 cups molasses

1 tsp. dry yeast

1/2 ounce each of hops, dried burdock, yellow dock,

    sarsaparilla, dandelion, sassafras and  spikenard roots

Wash the herbs and bruise them thoroughly with a potato masher

or pastry blender.  Cover with the water, bring to a boil and

simmer for 20 minutes over low heat.  Strain into a large crock.

 Add the molasses and cool to lukewarm.

When the mixture is lukewarm, add 1 teaspoon dry yeast and stir.

 Cover the crock with a cloth and put it in a warm, draft-free

place 70-80 degrees F.  After 2 hours, pour into clean bottles

to within 1/2 inch of the tops.  Cap with capper and metal caps,

but not corks.  Place the capped bottles on their sides in a

warm and draft-free spot (70-80 degrees F) for 5 days, then set

upright in a cool place.  The root beer will be ready to drink

in 10 days, but will keep for the whole summer.

SPRUCE BEER

1/8 pound of hops

1/2 cup of dried, bruised ginger root

1 pound of the outer twigs of spruce fir

3 quarts of molasses

1/2 yeast cake dissolved in 1/2 cup of warm water or 1/2 cup

    of liquid homemade yeast

In a large kettle combine the water, hops, ginger root and

spruce fir twigs.  Boil together until all the hops sink to the

bottom of the kettle. Strain into a large crock and stir in the

molasses.  After this has cooled add the yeast.  Cover and leave

to set for 48 hours.  Then bottle, cap and leave in a warm place

(70-75 degrees F) for 5 days.  It will now be ready to drink.

Store upright in a cool place.

     the back of a knife

    of warm water
