Once I discovered palm jaggery, a traditional Indian sugar made from palm tree sap, I started playing around with some very fun Indian recipes. This one for jaggery lemonade simply makes me swoon. Tart, spicy, sweet, mmmm.
6 tablespoons jaggery
3 ounces fresh ginger, crushed
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Add jaggery to 4 cups of water and stir to dissolve. Add crushed ginger, pepper, and lemon juice. Let sit for one hour, strain, and chill
