How to make it

  • Pour the water into a medium saucepan.
  • Slice your ginger as thinly as possible, and add it to the pan.
  • Cut your cayenne peppers into several pieces, and add them to the pan.
  • Cut your lemon and squeeze the juice into the pan. Don't worry if the seeds fall in.
  • Add your honey and molasses.
  • Bring the mixture to a slow boil and simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Strain the mixture.
  • You should have about a quart of ginger syrup. I keep mine in a large mason jar. You could keep it refrigerated for up to several weeks.
  • When you're ready for a glass of ginger ale, just add one part syrup to about 5 parts club soda or seltzer.
  • You could also add some hot water to the syrup for a spicy cup of ginger tea.

    The honey and stevia combination worked very well. I'm still tinkering with the amounts, but I'll post them soon.

    Thanks for your interest, Tanya! You could also try cutting back on the honey and adding a little stevia. That is my next experiment--I'll let you know how it goes.

    This sounds wonderful. I will be making this syrup this week. I really like that it's sweetened with honey. Added it to the honey group. Thanks. Tanya
