10/14//01 - Pretty good, but not great.
Some commercial ginger ales use pineapple juice instead of lime. I added
an additional 1/4 cup of sugar and that helped. Very hot with ginger
taste. You'll never go back to Canada Dry again.
8/22/02 - Reduced lime juice to 1 cup from 1.5 and increased sugar to 2
cups from 1.5
7/14/03 - Added 1 qt pineapple juice in place of lime. Start with 1 cup
sugar, then increase to taste.
12/24/03 - Martha Stewart recipe uses 1 cup lime juice and 2 cups sugar.
Changed to 1.5 quarts pineapple juice and 1 cup sugar. Produces 4.55
liters or 7 650 ml bottles. Capped bottles.
Its nice if you peel the ginger, but its
not really necessary.
