We partner with Willowbrook Farms in the Methow Valley for the ginger simple syrup that we use on our coffee bar; it is just the perfect amount of sweet and spicy.
If you live local, you can order some from them too by going to their website.
Don't live in the Valley? Don't fret. Cameron, from Willowbrook, kindly created an at-home version for your drinking pleasure:
Home Use Recipe:
2 cups organic sugar
3.5 cups water
4 oz organic ginger- washed, peels on
Combine sugar and water in a heavy duty pan. Stir the sugar until dissolved in the water over low heat, bringing to a low boil. While syrup is heating up, wash and rough chop the ginger. Puree the ginger in a food processor or fine chop by hand. Add the finely chopped ginger to the simple syrup after the sugar has completely dissolved and has reached a low rolling boil. Continue to cook syrup down at a low temp for 40mins to an hour- watch so that it does not overflow. Turn off the heat, cover with light-weight towel, and allow to cool. When cool, place pot in fridge. Allow to sit 24hrs. Drain through a mesh bag or a fine mesh sieve, discard ginger, and bottle syrup. Store in the fridge for 3 months.
Yields 1 quart.
