Cooking Instructions
1. Combine the water, honey and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat to make a syrup. Turn the heat off and let the mixture steep for 10 minutes. (For a stronger ginger flavor, let the mixture steep for 20 minutes or more.) Strain the syrup and let it cool.
