Where would world cuisine be without ginger? Popular ginger recipes include gingerbread, ginger cake, and especially Asian soups and seafood recipes.
The combination of ground, fresh and crystallised ginger gives these delicious cupcakes a multi-layered flavour that lovers of ginger will find irresistible. Revered in Asia for being both a stimulant and a calmative, ginger shows promise as a remedy for seasickness, morning sickness, and other stomach ills.
This is the only recipe I have ever used for gingerbread. It has never let me down and gets dragged out every year again for Christmas.
These are just what they say: big, soft, gingerbread biscuits. They stay soft, too. My oldest son's favourite.
Steak and broccoli are quickly cooked in a soy ginger sauce. Serve hot over steamed rice for a healthy, quick weeknight dinner.
This is a nice basic construction but you can make your house more elaborate as you get more familiar with the process. Use your imagination and lollies and icing to make doors, windows, pathways and a garden. The gingerbread needs to sit overnight after cooking and after assembly - the fun is in the decorating!
