  1. Just checked an Asian grocery in Milford with no luck.

    1. I am only familiar with stem ginger in syrup as a British food. Is it used in Asian cooking too? Absolute worst case, you could make your own if you're so inclined. I would imagine it is fairly easy, since it is just chunks of ginger poached in a simple syrup.

        Thanks mels, I did find a recipe online last night and it seems fairly easy. If I buy it on amazon a small jar would cost me almost $20 where I could make it for probably less than $2.00! It does copme from China, that's why I tried the asian market. I might try one more place , a european market in Waterbury on Wolcott Rd since I will be up that way this weekend.

          Made it today and it was easy enough, now it can soak in the syrup in the fridge until I need it for the recipe.

            Now I am dying to know...what are you going to use it for? I love ginger, so I am all ears when it comes to new ways of eating it!
