Homemade  Ginger Simple Syrup

What you need:  – Water – Fresh ginger root, peeled and sliced – Sugar

Peel fresh ginger by scraping a spoon across the skin of the ginger root. The peel will come away easily without taking off much of the root. 

Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add sugar and stir until dissolved.

Add ginger slices. Stir, then set syrup aside for 2 hours to allow the ginger time to infuse as the syrup cools to room temperature.

Remove the ginger pieces using a slotted spoon or fork.

Cool the syrup completely. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
