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 stored in the fridge and 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.
