This recipe doesn't actually use real ginger, which might come as a surprise since it is so delicious! I had fun converting the gram measurements into teaspoon/Tablespoon amounts, hopefully it still works out!
4 1/2 cups (1 Liter) water
4 tbs. ground ginger
2 cups sugar
4 liters water
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. tartaric acid
1-2 cans of pineapple chunks
