ginger syrup

28 Feb

1/2 pound ginger, chopped in food processor (no need to peel)
2 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
Thick lemon slices to serve with
sparkling water to serve with OR it makes a delightful tea – just add to taste to hot water

Boil ginger with water vigorously for about 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly in a sieve, squeezing out all water with the back of a spoon. Return to pot and add sugar. Bring to boil and simmer until mixture is maple-syrup consistency, stirring occasionally (about 45 minutes). Should keep indefinitely in a jar in the fridge. Serve with about a 1:3-4 ratio syrup:sparkling water (or to taste) with thick lemon slices between ice.
