Spice up your beverages and desserts with Homemade Ginger Syrup!
Mr. B and I love ginger. When we discovered how easy it is to make homemade ginger syrup, and this delicious condiment immediately became a new favorite among our kitchen staples.
Scroll to the bottom of the post for just a few of the ways we enjoy using it. Please let me know in the comments if you come up with any new ideas!
- 6 cups water
- 6 cups white sugar
- 1 lb ginger, sliced
- Put 3 cups of water and all the sliced ginger in a blender and blend until ginger is chunky smooth.
- Pour the blended mixture into a large saucepan. Stir in the remaining 3 cups of water and the sugar, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Allow the syrup to cool in the pan.
- Line a sieve with two to three layers of cheesecloth and strain syrup. Squeeze the cheesecloth bag tightly to get out all the gingery goodness.
- Pour syrup into containers and refrigerate or freeze.
