Simple syrups are usually just equal parts sugar and water, plus something to flavor it. Ginger syrup is pretty much the same, but its preparation is a little different.
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 cups water
- ginger, peeled and cut into chunks
Combine sugar and water and simmer until the sugar dissolved and the liquid becomes clear. Add the ginger and continue to simmer until the liquid is reduced down to a third. Strain.
Reducing the liquid allows it to absorb the flavor of the ginger.
