Ginger Syrup

Lovely Meal

This recipe makes a strongly-flavoured concentrated syrup, which can be diluted to taste.

It is delicious poured over chopped bananas or any spongy cake, or added to a jigger of rum.



Preparation Time:  5 Minutes 
Cooking Time:  1 hour

4 oz fresh root ginger 1 lb brown sugar
3 pints water 4 cloves

Peel the hard skin from the ginger, and chop into small pieces. Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan.

Bring to the boil, then reduce to a slow simmer for 1 hour until syrupy and well reduced.

Strain and store in a large sterilised container. Will keep for weeks in the fridge.
