- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 inches fresh ginger root, peeled
- 4 to 6 cups fresh fruit chunks
Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan over moderate heat. Add ginger and reduce heat to simmer. Stir until sugar dissolves and ginger infuses syrup, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and take out ginger. Cool and pour over chunks of pineapple, sliced kiwi, sliced bananas, or any of your favorite fruit combinations.
