Making Toddy at Home


super easy


Today, we’re diving into the bubbly world of toddy, right in the comfort of your home. With just a few simple ingredients and some patience, you’ll be crafting your own batch of this delightful drink. We’ll start with four cups of fresh coconut water, perfect for its natural sweetness and hydration benefits. To this, we add six tablespoons of organic sugar and a touch of yeast for that signature bubbly character. After letting the mixture sit and aerating it, we strain it into glass bottles, leaving room for fermentation.

Now, it’s time to let nature work its magic as we leave our toddy by the stove for 24 hours. Remember, proper ventilation is key to prevent any mishaps during fermentation. Once ready, you can enjoy your homemade toddy in various ways – whether paired with spicy dishes like Kerala-style mussels roast or simply chilled in a clay pot on a hot summer day.

But wait, there’s more! Toddies aren’t just for drinking; they can also be used in cooking to add depth and flavor to dishes. So, whether you’re in Houston, Texas, or New York, join us in exploring the vibrant world of toddy-making. Don’t forget to share your experiences and feedback with us. Until next time, stay safe, stay curious, and keep the culinary adventures brewing!
