Marshmallow and Ginger Syrup Ingredients

  • 10 marshmallows
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup grated fresh ginger

Marshmallow and Ginger Syrup Directions

  1. To make the syrup, toast the marshmallows over dying embers until they are dark brown and melted inside.
  2. Put them into a heavy-bottomed pot and add the sugar and water.
  3. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar and the marshmallows.
  4. Once you reach a gentle boil, turn the heat down to a simmer and continue cooking and stirring until the marshmallows have dissolved.
  5. Remove the syrup from the heat, stir in the ginger, and transfer to a heatproof container.
  6. Cover and allow to cool overnight.
  7. The next day, strain the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth. The syrup will keep in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for at least 2 weeks.
