Taste Tested : Homemade Cherry Soda

Ontario summers are packed with fresh local fruit. Try something new with the fruit you find at your farmers’ market, and give soda a try! After your first batch, you’ll probably be hooked, and start experimenting with cool flavour combos (like strawberry-mint, or cherry-peach)!

“I’ll be honest with you, the first time I made this soda it exploded out of the bottle and all over my friends (it still tasted delicious, just in case anyone was wondering). I have since learned that the amount of time you allow the yeast to be active is very important. Give it no more than twelve hours, and then stash it away in the fridge. The only ingredient here that most won’t have heard of is dry Champagne yeast. The good news is that not only can this yeast be found at any brew shop (wine, or beer), but it also costs next to nothing for a package that’s five times the amount needed for a small batch of soda. Win!” — Anna Fischer, Feast ON Communications Coordinator
