Ginger Syrup

YIELD: ABOUT 1 CUP

Ginger ale is one of my favorite soda guilty pleasures. But have you ever noticed something missing from it, like a pow of actual ginger? This homemade syrup combines fresh gingerroot and ground ginger for an explosive flavor that’s better than any store-bought variety.

2 cups water
1 (6-inch) piece gingerroot, sliced into thin strips
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon ground ginger

In a medium pot, combine the water, gingerroot, and sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat, and whisk in the ground ginger. Reduce the heat to medium or medium-low so the mixture is at a simmer. Let cook until the syrup is reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Take off the heat and remove the ginger pieces with either a slotted spoon or by straining the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve. Let the syrup cool, and refrigerate in a covered container for up to 5 days.

To make Ginger Syrup: Stir 3 tablespoons Ginger Syrup, or to taste, into 8 ounces (1 cup) seltzer.
