Ginger People Ginger Syrup, reviewed

Ginger People Ginger Syrup

I never get tired of maple syrup, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like to mix it up from time to time and vary the syrups I keep in my pantry. There are some good fruit syrups out there – Raspberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, etc. – and I’ve had some good nut-infused maple syrups, too. The Ginger Syrup from The Ginger People is a little different, since it is a straight ginger syrup, sweetened and flavored with real ginger, and does not have a maple syrup base as so many syrups do.

I’ve had this syrup sitting on my shelf for a while now, but found that as I start to do more gingerbread dishes, including Gingerbread Pancakes, in the kitchen. It’s just made with ginger and a thick sugar syrup, so it has a clean ginger flavor and none of the extra stickiness of a corn syrup-based syrup. You can add it to soda water and make your own version of ginger ale, and the bottle recommends trying the syrup in cocktails, but I like a little drizzled on pancakes and quickbreads for extra sweetness and spice.

  1. I love the idea of making your own ginger ale. I need to get my hands on a bottle of this stuff!

  2. thanks for sharing ,i looks like delicious

  3. i’ve never seen ginger syrup before; wonder if I could find it in australia…

  4. I make my own ginger syrup, often with honey as the base instead of sugar, and use it as you described, in seltzer water for homemade ginger ale (esp since none of the standard brands even have real ginger in them anymore). But i also LOVE it in coffee or black tea, or mixed with hot water, brandy and lemon for a hot toddy variation, and it makes for a good addition to perk up homemade vinaigrettes, cranberry sauce, and umpteen other uses.
