    Preserved Ginger Cake With Lemon Icing Glaze

    This looks great! Is preserved ginger the same as ginger jam?

    From what I gather, preserved ginger is usually pieces of cooked ginger jarred in a salt-sugar syrup, although some recipes use sugar only.

    Having trouble finding advice about a substitute -- hopefully someone more knowledgeable will show up, but if not, I'd either go shopping or use candied ginger and boil it briefly in simple syrup.

    It's easily found in jars in an Asian grocery. It's not jam.

    icon_biggrin.gif Back in 2005 I visited England and visited Tasty Tidbits - Marie the chef, she served her delicious cake! To answer your question - I see Stem Ginger (in syrup) preserved ginger at my local grocery stores, sometimes in the international food section, also specialty food shops usually carry it too. Any store selling imports from Britain have it too. It is sweet and delicious! Ginger in a sweet syrup! Good luck in your search... BTW there are recipes to make your own too!

    Ginger preserves and preserved ginger are not the same thing, and ginger in syrup is something else again. This recipe is calling for ginger in syrup (sometimes called stem ginger, especially in Britain). Ginger preserves are thickened with added pectin, like any other preserves. Preserved ginger is an Asian ingredient, with both sugar and salt added.
