Orange-Ginger Syrup

Yield Makes 3/4 cup
Make this citrusy-sweet syrup up to three days ahead. It's also tasty swirled into unsweetened iced tea.

Ingredients

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

How to Make It

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

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

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