Homemade Ginger (Dunphy) Recipe

From correspondent Jeannette Dunphy

Chop the ginger up quite finely, and simmer in the water and sugar until the ginger is tender and sugar has turned to syrup. Allow to cool, then blend the whole lot up and add to a 1 litre bottle. Top up with vodka. Let sit for a month at least. When ready, strain through paper towels. Keep the alcoholic ginger for later use in cooking, or maybe in the next batch of liqueur.

What you now have will knock your socks off, so sip gently, and no smoking in the immediate vacinity. Tastes a little like Green Ginger Wine, but more potent. Serve on ice, or with lemonade.
