2-in-1 Recipe: Crystalized Ginger & Ginger Syrup

One day last year, I somehow ended up with loads of ginger in the fridge; I didn’t want to waste it, so I decided to preserve it by making some crystallized ginger. The great thing about this recipe is that you end up making homemade ginger syrup along with Continue reading
