A grabbed a box of crystalized ginger at the store the other day, it just called out to me, and I’ve been snacking on it ever since. I started looking around for ideas of ways to use it, besides to up the game on the gingersnaps I have plans to make. Well, there are lots of creative and yummy ideas to give a try.

  • Chop and add to batter for cookies, such as ginger snaps, or quick breads like gingerbread, orange bread or banana bread.
  • Melt butter with diced Crystallized Ginger, fresh lemon juice and sliced green onions in a saucepan. Spoon over hot rice and serve with chicken or fish.
  • Sprinkle finely chopped pieces as a finishing touch on apple pie a la mode or a whipped cream-topped brownie.
  • Combine diced Crystallized Ginger with nuts, brown sugar and spices for a baked apple or pear filling.
  • Add chunks to a stir-fry for a sweet and spicy bite.
  • Dip Crystallized Ginger pieces in melted chocolate. Let cool and serve as a special after dinner treat.
  • Add to water and sugar mixture to make ginger-infused simple syrup. Strain before adding to drinks, such as iced tea.
  • Sprinkle diced Crystallized Ginger into fruit salad for a spicy, zesty flavor lift.
  • Add to a homemade cranberry sauce with orange zest.
