I have an organic lemon tree in my backyard that yields more lemons than I know what to do with. This recipe adds a hint of ginger for a subtle, yet spicy kick. There is enough sugar in this recipe to keep the lemons tasting tart, but not too sweet.
Ginger makes one of my favorite candies. Spicy, chewy and amazing in desserts, I serve honey candied ginger as an after-dinner treat. Slices of honey candied ginger are also delicious at the bottom of your cup of tea or hot chocolate.
This rosy pink jam looks sweet as pie but it has a secret: the tingle of ginger (raw and candied), just enough bite to keep things interesting. Try it on a cream biscuit or in a thumbprint cookie for a fun twist on a standard!
I love this jam because it's both easy to make and super versatile. It's lovely with breakfast items like English muffins or scones, but it gets really exciting when you pair it with chevre and candied bacon.
