This recipe is similar to one the I found when I was pregnant with my second son. I suffered from some horrible morning sickness and this syrup and some homemade ginger tea really helped get me through those first few months. I later delivered a very healthy baby.
This can be used to sweeten drinks like tea and/or lemonade or used in a variety of other ways. I like to take the strained, sliced ginger root and let it dry for something similar to candied ginger. It is a little spicy though so be prepared if you pop a piece in your mouth.
Simple Ginger Syrup
- 1 c. water
- 1 c. sugar or monk fruit sweetener
- 1 c. thinly sliced ginger root
Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
Turn on low and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes and then strain out the ginger pieces.
Pour into a container and keep in the fridge.
You can lay the pieces of ginger on a plate to dry and then use them as candied ginger or for garnish.
