To make these drops, you will need:

  • ginger
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 spoon of honey
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/8 teaspoon of cloves
  • Powdered sugar
  • Baking paper

Clean the ginger root, cut into small pieces and crush.

Mix a spoon of crushed ginger with a cup of water, a cup of sugar, a spoonful of honey, 1/2 lemon and 1/8 teaspoon of cloves.

Boil the composition for about 15-20 minutes, and then remove from the heat and cool.

When the mixture begins to harden, take one teaspoon at a time and shape the drops on a baking sheet.

Sprinkle the drops with powdered sugar so they don’t stick together. The drops can be stored in a jar and used whenever needed.
