2 cups grated or chopped fresh ginger with peel
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
Remove the peel of the lemon, do not to include too much of the bitter white pith. Finely chop the lemon peel and ginger in a food processor. Put lemon-ginger mixture in a saucepan, add the sugar, water & bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain the mixture and cool. Will keep up to one week in the fridge when covered.
