Expert Tips

  • Check your produce department for clear plastic bags of crystallized ginger. Buying ginger this way costs much less than buying it in a jar from the spice section.
  • Garnish with additional crystallized ginger. (If you purchase a 3-oz package, there will be 2 tablespoons left over for this.)
