  1. Love the ginger spread! A couple of good uses I've found was for Panini (chicken/pork are great -- with brie would be outstanding!) and Shortbread linzer cookies (instead of traditional raspberry jam). For simpler use, I like it slathered on TJs sourdough english muffins. zing!

      What a great idea, re the Linzer Tortes, ally. I was thinking of making them for Christmas this year. Half a batch of raspberry and half a batch of ginger sounds delicious *and* festive on the serving platters. Thanks.

    2. Some one gave me a jar - wonderful with hot water and a squeeze of lemon - as a morning wake me up or, I imagine, good w/o the lemon for an upset tummy.

      1. I don't like things that are too sweet in the morning, so I make some plain oats with a spoonful of the ginger spread stirred in -- it's just the right amount of sweet with a good kick of ginger, very tasty and a good way to wake up in the AM.

        MMRuth, I also use it as a tea -- great minds, right? ;)

        Also seems like it would be a good base for a glaze -- chicken, pork, even lamb.

        1. I don't know if this is the similar to the sweet ginger spread by the "Ginger People," but I love it mixed in with some Greek yogurt in the mornings and chopped nuts.

          1. Haven't tried the TJs version but I like the Ginger People one on peanut butter sandwiches. It's interesting with cheese also.
