Step one

Peel and cut the ginger into smaller pieces and place in a food processor.

Step two

Carefully add a cup of the boiling water to the ginger and process until the mixture resembles mulch.

Step three

Add ginger mixture to the rest of the boiling water and turn off the heat.

Step four

Stir well, cover, and let sit for 1 hour.

Step five

Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pressing down on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. (The strained liquid will be cloudy.) Discard the solids.

Step six

Add the lime juice and light brown sugar; stir to dissolve the sugar.

Step seven

Let cool, transfer to bottles and store in the refrigerator.
