Ginger Cake with the leftover pulp:

In a blender or food processor grind the ginger with a bit of the water from the recipe.
Pour the ginger and all of the water along with the sugar and spices into a heavy pot and bring to a simmer.
Simmer for at least 10 minutes, but up to 30 minutes is great, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Turn off the heat, cover and allow to cool to room temp.
Once at room temp strain out the solids through a (cheesecloth lined) fine mesh strainer.
Mix in the ginger bug.
Pour into sealable bottles or jugs that are ‘pressure rated’ – Beer or pop bottles are great.
Let stand on your countertop at room temp for 1-3 days, depending on the level of carbonation and alcohol** you are looking for.
Refrigerate and enjoy!
