As I’m nearing the next border in my Virtual African Loop, I’ve been revisiting some of the recipes I’ve really enjoyed.
That has included ginger beer, from Sierra Leone:
I have a drip coffee machine that has a metal mesh filter that I use as my sieve. Of course the coffee maker itself provides the hot water. Having a food processor (or spice grinder) available greatly simplifies the ginger-grating process, though peeling ginger at quantity is still kind of a pain. If there’s a trick that makes that easier I haven’t learned it.
But the results are quite nice.
