• Preserved stem ginger
Preserved stem ginger
Preserved or stem ginger is made from tender young ginger root - which is technically not a root at all but a rhizome or underground stem of a tropical plant.

Finely chop or slice the ginger pieces to sprinkle over cream, ice cream, mascarpone, pancakes and fruit salads, adding a little syrup from the jar too if a sauce is desired.

Preserved ginger goes especially well with chocolate, caramel and honey.
