Fresh Ginger Syrup

Ginger Syrup

I just love fresh ginger.  This syrup is great to use in cocktails or just use with soda water as a refreshing pick me up in the afternoon.  It also helps when you’re not feeling your best or a bit nauseous.

Ingredients

100g fresh ginger

4 cups of water

1 cup sugar

Juice of 1 lemon

Zest of 1 lemon

Method

Grate ginger into a saucepan and add all other ingredients.  Bring to the boil and then reduce heat.  Simmer for 30-40 minutes until slightly syrupy.

Let cool and then strain through a fine sieve.  Store syrup in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

You can use the reserved strained ginger in ice cream – delicious!
