Things To Do With… Leftover Stem Ginger

Stem ginger is made by boiling peeled fresh ginger, making a ginger syrup with sugar and then putting it in jars. It lasts a long time unopened, but once opened it’ll need to be used within 8 weeks. If you have any leftover stem ginger after using a bulb or two in a recipe, I’ve collected some delicious idea and inspirations to use it up and avoid wasting this delicious and flavoursome ingredient.

If you fancy making your own stem ginger Tales From The Kitchen Shed has a fabulous homemade stem ginger recipe.

    1. Thank you Miss C your cake looks amazing. I have been looking for something to do with my ginger. Plus this looks like I can make it paleo also for a friend.

  1. Hi Kat, thanks for including my chocolate tarts in your post…love all the ideas! And thanks for the Versatile Blogger Award…sorry I've been a bit slow to respond, I've been unwell for a couple of weeks and thought it was a good time to have a baking/blogging/twitter sabbatical but I plan to get back to it soon! Thanks again! 🙂
