Lately, I have been researching herbal sodas, cordials and ciders. I have been experimenting with fresh fruits to make fruit syrup with tea infusions and making them carbonated with my ginger bug, or my newly acquired distillers yeast.
My initial experience with herbs for the last couple years, I have delved into decoctions and teas, so trying to go for a herbal soda did not seem that hard to try. I recently bought a good supply of herbs to get this project and my supplies started.
I bought some root herbs for my experiments like Dandelion Root, Burdock Root.
My husband bought me some stainless steel pots; a set of a 6,12,14,16 quarts so I can make any size infusion that I need. I am excited because I am starting to collect reusable bottles for saving soda in the fridge as well.
I am now working on making home brews of cordials and decoctions with carbonation somehow.
Here are some pictures of my experiments lately.
I have found some amazing research ie recipes on some old herbal decoctions and infusions.
