I’m not a big fan of carbonated beverages, but once in a while I do like ginger ale, especially when I have an upset stomach. Homemade ginger ale is easy to make and much more "gingery" than anything you can buy at the store.
|Time||5 minutes preparation plus 1 hour to cook and time to cool|
Grind ginger in food processor, place in saucepan with sugar and regular water, and bring to a boil. Lower heat and let simmer for an hour. Remove from heat, let cool, and strain.
Combine ginger syrup with sparkling water and serve. To make individual servings, use ¼ c syrup plus 1 c water.
|Notes||Keep unused syrup refrigerated in tightly covered container for up to 2 months.
To make ginger tea, combine 3-4 T of syrup with 1 c boiling water.
