- 5 to 6 (1-inch) slices ginger
- 1 cup dried sorrel leaves
- 1 tablespoon cloves
- Brown sugar
- Red wine sherry, optional
Let cut ginger sit for 2 to 3 hours. The longer it sits the stronger it becomes. Boil ginger in 2 quarts of water. Once water is boiling, add sorrel and cloves. Boil for 30 minutes. Strain and add sugar and wine, to taste. Chill and serve.
*Sorrel is a plant that grows on trees. It is harvested around November and December and can be purchased pre-packaged from Caribbean or African stores.
