Enjoy this syrup as a yummy sweetener for iced or hot tea.  Or as a fruit glaze for the Terrace Avenue Inn.

Breakfast at the Terrace Avenue Inn

Breakfast at the Terrace Avenue Inn

Each morning at the Terrace Avenue Inn, Brenda serves her guests a good hot breakfast paired with fresh fruit and scones.  The fruit is glazed with our Southern Simple Syrup with ginger.
Fresh ginger adds health benefits and a delicious mild flavor.
Another option for Southern Simple Syrup is substituting the fresh ginger for a vanilla bean.  This creates a Vanilla Simple Syrup that adds a creamy sweet flavor to a cup of tea.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • piece of fresh ginger cut into pieces

Bring to a light boil and reduce heat.  Simmer till sugar dissolves.  As the liquid cools it will thicken just a bit. If using the Vanilla Bean – leave the bean whole but follow the same directions. Remove bean before serving.
