Ginger Beer

One of the great things about making the candied ginger was the ginger syrup.  As part of the process of making candied ginger, the ginger is steeped in a simply syrup for about an hour.  The result is a sweet, intensely ginger syrup.  Intrigued, I mixed this syrup with seltzer and found that I made myself the perfect ginger beer!
