  1. Wash and slice the lemon.
  2. Peel and slice the ginger. If you love ginger then you can add more to your mixture if you desired.
  3. Place the lemon and ginger into the glass jar in layers. Then pour over the maple syrup until the ingredients are covered.
  4. Place in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours to allow the flavours to infuse.
  5. Give the lemon ginger syrup a gentle mix (the maple syrup will settle to the bottom). Then scoop a spoonful into a mug and add hot water. Enjoy!
  6. Over time the mixture might go a little bit jelly like and that's okay, just give it a quick stir before using. This syrup should keep for several weeks in the refrigerator.

Buying Tips
