This is a wonderful sauce to serve over French Vanilla ice cream. Definitely for ginger lovers only, though; although if you leave out the ground and crystallized ginger, you do have a terrific butterscotch sauce.

- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1⁄4 cup half-and-half cream
