Ginger Bug

This was posted over at Holistic Squid and I wanted to save it.

Ginger Bug Ingredients

3 cups water
3 teaspoons sugar
3 teaspoons diced ginger

Ginger Bug Method

In a quart size jar combine all ingredients.
Place a tight lid on the jar, give it a shake and allow it to sit in a warm or room temperature spot (72-80F).
If your home tends to be cool at night, consider getting a seedling mat-. Place the jar on top of the mat and out of direct sun light.
Every day for the next week add 2 more teaspoons each of sugar and diced ginger. The liquid will begin to get bubbly towards the end of the week. If you’re using the classic mason jar lid, you will be able to feel the top of the lid for pressure or even a distended lid. Give that baby a little burp. Once bubbly, it’s ready to use.

Active Time: 10 minutes

Yields: 1 quart
