  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 cups ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 7 oz apple cider vinegar (volume may vary- see instructions below)
  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat combine the water, sugar, and honey. Heat and stir frequently until the sugar is dissolved. 

  2. Add the sliced fresh ginger to the saucepan and cook for 15 minutes. At this point, the water should have a caramel-colored tint and be fragrant. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool on the counter. 

  3. Strain and discard the ginger, reserving the liquid in a jar. Weigh the reserved liquid and add in half as much apple cider vinegar (for ex. my liquid was 14 oz, so I added in 7 oz. of vinegar). Store jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
