8 x spray free limes
3 cups of water
3 cups of sugar - Note: I found it a little too tart so added another 1/2 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of fresh ginger finely sliced
Slice the limes in half lengthways and then slice each half as thinly as you can.
Discard any seeds.
Pop sliced limes and juice in a non reactive bowl (glass or ceramic).
Pour over the water and leave stand overnight.
Next day pour into a large saucepan and simmer until soft (about half an hour).
Add the sugar and stir over a high heat to dissolve.
Then bring to the boil and continue to boil uncovered, but do not stir.
Rapid boil for about 20 minutes or until a teaspoon of mixture gels on a cold saucer.
Remove from the heat, add the ginger and let stand for 10 minutes before ladling into steralised jars.
