Ingredients

  • 300g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • edible gold glitter (optional)

To decorate

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ribbon

Method

  1. Put the golden caster sugar, 200ml water and ground ginger into a saucepan. Add the cinnamon stick and bring to a gentle boil. Simmer for 5 mins until the sugar has dissolved, then stir in a little edible gold glitter, if you like. Pour into a 500ml sterilised bottle (see tip below).

  2. To decorate, tie a cinnamon stick around the neck with a pretty ribbon, if you like. Will keep for up to 1 year.

This sounds great, but can we vary the spices? for instance, replace 1 tsp ginger by the same amount of French gingerbread spice mix (containing cinnamon, ginger, star anise, cloves...). and would this alter the time it keeps? Thanks for your help.

Hi there. Altering the variations of spices is no problem as long as you keep to the same amounts.
