Stem ginger in syrup

 Stem ginger in syrup Key facts This is young ginger that has been peeled and preserved in sugar syrup - the heat of the ginger providing delicious contrast with the sweetness. Ginger is known for its benefits for digestive problems, as well as nausea and travel sickness.

I always have a jar of this ingredient handy – it's lovely in cakes, it does wonders for rhubarb, and can be used chopped as a garnish and sprinkled with its syrup over ice-cream.

It keeps for ages, so it doesn't matter if you're not using it often. My favourite ginger cake is made with this.
