So, I made some ginger syrup; a classic remedy for nausea, vomiting, cramps, and fever. my favorite part was making the tags, honestly  Cheesy



Since I totally spaced, and didn't add the recipe, here it is!

Ginger Syrup
Yields two bottles (probably around two cups total)

-Two medium ginger roots, and a few small extra hunks, chopped into  1/2" coin-chunk things
-4-6 cups water
-2-3 cups honey (in the end, you're gonna want a 50/50 mix of the liquid and honey

1.) Put the ginger and water into a pot, and heat on high til simmering. Reduce heat to continue simmer.
2.) Let liquid reduce by half. Turn off heat, and remove ginger pieces. Pour liquid into one or more jars, only filling up to half of the jar/bottle
3.) Pour equal amount of honey into jar. cap/cork jar or bottle, and shake until the liquid and honey are mixed. Label and store in the refrigerator for 3-6 months.

Thanks for looking!

This is a stupid question, I'm sure, but... once you have the syrup, how do you use it? Do you just et a spoonful, or do you make a tea of it, or how does that work?

Thanks for sharing the recipe, and I'm sorry for my ignorance. Smiley

When you're nauseated or feverish, you can take 2-4tsp at a time, and about 2 tsp in carbonated water makes the best ginger ale you have ever tasted.

I also realized you can take the scrap ginger you just boiled, boil it again, add lots of sugar to the water, water it down and then drink it as a fantastically spicy tea. Perfect over ice, or piping hot. Very very tasty.
