Simple Syrups for Teas Recipe: Vanilla Ginger Sucré

This Asian pantry superstar is going to do the heavy lifting, in this simple crowd pleasing Vanilla-Ginger Sucré.

Every kitchen in Singapore probably has at least a thumb of ginger lying around, so all it takes is for you to go out and buy some Vanillin powder from your local market or baking shop. If you’re still left empty handed by check out, you might want to look again at the baking aisle for some Vanilla extract or Vanilla bean paste (although I think it’s harder to find this in a typical baking aisle of a market). Double the measurements in the recipe with your Vanilla extract and you got yourself the warm syrupy smell you will want to add to every Ember Glow cup you brew now.
