(OMG yummy beautiful food) and tried it. It came out great and was pretty easy! I saved the syrup and put a spoonful of it in a glass with seltzer - it was OK, but when I added the juice from half of a lemon - YUM! Very refreshing! I didn't think to save the water from the initial boiling of the ginger, next time I will because it should be great in iced tea (or hot!)
(not as nice as David Lebovitz's photo)
Speaking of Shepherd Susie and the Juniper Moon Fiber Farm, she has had 2 of her nannies give birth to twins - the goatlings are named for Muppets so the first set of twins, a boy and a girl are Gonzo and Camilla. They had their first day outside of the nursery pen and the video is so fun - if you have never seen a baby goat, go look at this video, they BOUNCE just like Tigger! Twin boy goatlings, Statler and Waldorf came into the world this weekend. There are great photos on the farm blog, and a live "lambCam" focused on the nursery.
"But," you ask, "What about the chicks?" Well here is a video! Watch Mavis NOT escape!
