Ingredients


Makes: 12 servings
  • 3 C (750 ml) water
  • 2 C (500 ml) sugar
  • 6 pieces crystallized ginger
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) cardamom
  • 3-5 pieces star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 12-14 clementines

Preparation


 
  • In Multipurpose Pot - 8 C set over medium-high heat, bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring often to dissolve sugar, 6–8 minutes. Stir in crystallized ginger, cardamom, star anise and broken cinnamon stick.
  • Cover and turn off heat. Let stand 15–20 minutes to meld flavours, then strain. Discard solids. Refrigerate syrup for at least 2 hours, until well chilled. Syrup will keep for at least 1 month in the refrigerator.
