Recipes using candied ginger
Can anyone share with me their favorite recipes which contain candied ginger? I made a pound of candied ginger and am looking for ways to use it. I have already sprinkled it on top of fruit salad, mango sorbet, and lychee sorbet.
I am open to any ideas (mixed drinks, breads, cookies, cooking).
I like eating it as is, but I need some variety.
My best friend adores ginger, and frequently adds small bits of candied ginger in her oatmeal cookies. She also makes ginger creme brulee and tops it with candied ginger. It's good in homemade granola. How about adding some to pumpkin bread?
Molasses cookies or gingersnaps (I have a triple gingersnap recipe at home, I think, that uses candied ginger, freshly grated ginger and powdered ground ginger)
Sprinkle it on yogurt
Chop some up finely and sprinkle into an apple pie
Chicken salad with celery, apples, walnuts
Those are what I can think of off the top of my head here at work (shhh, don't tell anyone <g>). I probably have several recipes at home in my MasterCook if you want me to check for any other ideas.
