I love this simple syrup. I grate the ginger rather than slicing and use about double the amount suggested in the recipe because I am a bit of a ginger addict. Very easy to make and tastes great in coffee!
Good and simple recipe, but DON'T throw out the ginger. In fact, add more ginger, cook it about 15 minutes longer (stirring a few times), lay the ginger out to dry and coat it in sugar. Voila! Ginger candy!
