Homemade Root Beer

Carbonated with dry ice and ready to enjoy in just 15 minutes.

Making delicious homemade root beer with The Big H Root Beer Extract is as easy as ABC
  1. Add sugar and The Big H Root Beer Extract to cold water and mix thoroughly in an open food-safe container. Do not cover the container with a lid while preparing root beer since pressure created may cause the container to explode.
  2. Add dry ice to the mixture in a well-ventilated area and stir frequently to prevent dry ice from clumping to the bottom of the container. Continue to stir until all of the dry ice has dissolved. For root beer slushes add slightly more dry ice. (Dry ice is available at most grocery stores.) Preparation time: 15 minutes. Making the root beer is half the fun!
  3. Enjoy!

Ornate Cod Liver Oil Bottle.

Cod Liver Oil Bottle (Brown and Scaled)

Scaled Brown Bottle With Fish.
I don't generally post screw top bottles, but there might be a few.  This bottle is so ornate that I made the exception.

I assume it is a cod liver oil bottle but don't know for sure.

The following is more typical of the cod liver oil bottles that I've found on the Treasure Coast.


If you know that the first bottle is not a cod liver oil bottle, please let me know.
