Ginger Simple Syrup

This is a recipe that makes use of the byproduct of another recipe called crystallized ginger recipe. Make crystallized ginger first, then make this recipe.

This is just a simple syrup with a twist and so you can follow the simple syrup recipe except you’re using leftover ginger water.

Recipe Notes

Just like making simple syrup, if you are using granulated sugar, you can measure it out by volume, and it is a simple 1:1 ratio. But if you are measuring the sugar by weight, when using brown sugar for instance, then use 75% sugar mass to water volume ratio. That is, use 300 mg of sugar to 400 ml of water.

Just like a regular simple syrup, this recipe is incredibly forgiving. A little over in one ingredient. A little under in another.
