ginger preserve

  • m

My very favorite "marmalade" is Dundee Ginger Preserve. It's not only hard to find, but quite expensive. And I am addicted to it on my morning toast.
Do any of you have a recipe for such? I'm sure it uses candied ginger, but what else?
Thank you for any help.

  1. Many years ago I made some ginger ice cream (used to be a place in SF Chinatown that had it, but closed). I cut up some fresh ginger into little nuggets and simmered it for a long time, then made a syrup. While I used it to flavor the ice cream, what I got was something close to the Dundee's stuff.

      I love ginger syrup and make it a lot. It's great over a poached pear, or orange supremes, and good by the spoonful too. Pat

        I just made Ginger Pot de Creme last night. The technique was to grate ginger on a coarse grater and just bring the cream and milk to a simmer. Remove from heat and let steep, covered, for 1/2 hour. This produced a beautiful pronounced ginger flavor with a long finish.

          Your Ginger Pot de Creme sounds heavenly. Would you share the whole recipe (i.e., how much milk, cream, sugar, etc.?) Could you use candied ginger and eliminate all or some of the sugar? Have you ever experimented with making it with evaporated or sweetened condensed milk?

      3. I've seen ginger preserve at Trader Joes. I've personally have never tried it, but you might want to check it out.

        1. Buderim Ginger is an Australian Company which produces Ginger marmalade and preserves. I have seen it in copious supply at Wholefoods Natural Foods and tasted it many times. Absolutely fantastic..they also have pickeld and candied ginger in Syrup.
