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
|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.
