Medicinal Ginger Limeade
by Rosie and Susu
The Rogues, not having experience as commandos, did not always pack their rations with too much thought. The result is that many of the pilots, human and alien, suffered from "plugged bowels." The drugs they had to solve the problem were sometimes worse than the condition, and many of them suffered from the "runs" on treatment. Remembering that he had suffered similarly shortly after his parents had died -- when he could not be bothered to eat properly, and was under the care of the well-meaning but unskilled Booster Terrik -- Wedge Antilles tried to remember the cure. He finally sent a holo to Booster, who replied with this recipe for a refreshing drink. Wedge made up a batch, had everyone sip as much as they wanted, and the desired laxative effect took place. From thenceforth, this syrup and citrus juice -- to be stirred together into a refreshing drink -- was always included in the Rogue's packs!
Note: Cook to 220° to 225° for a thicker syrup suitable for pancakes.
Yield: 1 quart ginger syrup.
Makes 2 quarts.
