The decision for this week's weekend project was easy. Spring is refreshing and so is ginger and everything made with it. But real ginger, not artificial ginger flavoring agents. Fortunately ginger simple syrup is one of the, um, simplest, things you can make. And once you have it, you can use it in cocktails, to make your own ginger ale, glaze salmon or chicken. Or add some gingery goodness to your morning latte.

What You Need:
5-inch piece of ginger
2 cups water
1 cup sugar

Knife or grater
Medium saucepan
Cheesecloth or fine strainer
Jar or Bottle

What To Do

Peel the ginger and chop into a large dice. You could also grate the ginger, Add the ginger to a saucepan with 2 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar and simmer over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves., about 3-4 minutes.

Lower the heat to simmer, and continue cooking for 30 minutes, until the liquid is syrupy and reduced by half. Strain out the ginger solids and refrigerate.
