Yield: 1 Servings
|2 ounces||Root Ginger, Bruised, Peeled and chopped|
|1 pounds||Granulated Sugar|
|½ ounce||Tartaric Acid|
|\N \N||Juice of 1 lemon|
|1 \N||Lemon, Sliced|
Put the ginger, sugar, tartaric acid and lemon into a bowl and cover with 1 gallon of boiling water. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Leave for about three or four days, then strain and pour the liquid into sterilised bottles. It will be ready and really delicious to drink after just a few days and can be diluted quite happily with either still or sparkling water.
