Orange-Ginger Syrup


Make this citrusy-sweet syrup up to three days ahead. It's also tasty swirled into unsweetened iced tea.


Makes 3/4 cup

Recipe from

Southern Living


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
2 teaspoons orange rind
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice


Cook all ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute.

Remove from heat; let stand 15 minutes. Remove and discard ginger and orange rind. Cool syrup; chill 1 hour or up to 3 days.

Note: Remove rind from an orange using a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Avoid the white, bitter pith as much as possible.
