This kid can cook :0) !!! You HAVE to taste Aideens Homemade ginger -ale...its SO fantastic !!! Its a simple recipie, basically, you chop up 3 pieces of fresh ginger ,add 1.5 cups of sugar, and 2 cups of water...then you simmer it all for about 5 minutes...now cover and let "sit" for an hour. Then strain and store in the fridge. When you want a glass, put 1 part ginger-ale mixture to 3 parts sparkling water and add a slice of fresh lime...its a taste sensation...and bless this kid she even washes up after he cookery class !!!
