  • 1/2 cup sugar 

  • 3 tbsp water 

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 

  • 1/4 cup grated ginger  

  • 1/4 cup honey 

  • Powdered sugar or cornstarch for dusting  


  1. Combine the sugar, water, lemon juice and ginger in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.

  2. Boil for 5 minutes on medium heat.  Strain the ginger syrup and transfer the ginger juice into the saucepan. 

  3. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes. 

  4. After 2 to 3 minutes, in a small bowl of water, add a small drop of ginger syrup, and when rolled, it turns to a small ball. 

  5. Add in the honey, mix and boil until done. 

  6. Test by dropping a little syrup onto dusted wax paper or butter paper; if the syrup holds the shape, then it's ready. 

  7. Let the mixture cool slightly, then drop onto a wax paper into rounds. 

  8. Allow cooling completely, dust with powdered sugar or cornstarch.  

  9. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
