Fresh Ginger Ale
2.00 c Coarsely chopped, peeled
3.00 Strips lemon peel, pith
1.50 c Sugar
3.00 Quarts chilled club soda
Put ginger, lemon peel, and 4 cups of water into a 4quart pan. Bring
to the boil, and continue boiling, without lid, for about 10 minutes.
Stir in 1 1/2 cups sugar and boil for about 15 more minutes. Liquid
