Ginger is a real flavour enhancer. It gives salad a wonderful fresh taste when grated raw. Added to tea it settles the stomach and helps a cold, ginger can be added to a stir fry at the last few minutes and can be candied to make sweets and added to cakes.
A useful syrup to add to your collection, this is nice to add to make a Gingertini, to add to soda water to make a mocktail or a cup of tea. 
GINGER SYRUP
1 3/4 CUPS OF SUGAR
3 1/2 CUPS OF WATER
1 SIX-INCH PIECE OF GINGER, PEELED AND VERY THINLY SLICED
IN A MEDIUM SAUCEPAN ADD ALL INGREDIENTS AND SLOWLY TO A BOIL OVER A MEDIUM HIGH HEAT
COOK UNTIL SUGAR HAS COMPLETELY DISSOLVED ABOUT 15 MINUTES
REDUCE HEAT AND SIMMER FOR 5 MINUTES
REMOVE FROM STOVE AND LET STAND FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES. THE POTENCY OF THE SYRUP WILL DEPEND ON THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT STEEPS
REMOVE GINGER, DISCARD, LEAVE TO COOL
STORE REFRIGERATED IN AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER FOR UP TO 2 MONTHS. IF IT LASTS THAT LONG!
