According to the recipe, this appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press in 1938. I have adapted it for modern times, as it talks about 'removing from the fire' etc. If you like ginger, you will LOVE this recipe!

this was one of the first recipes i got off line, and it is a winner! My Grandmother is hooked on this rather pricey ginger marmalade from england, this is better. It does make well over 2 pints, although i have never made a single batch. I shred all my fruits in the F.P. and you will have to clean the blade when you do the ginger if you are doing a large batch, as the ginger has alot of fiber. this is great as a jam but also a wonderful glaze over chicken or pork, top brie and bake, or just grab a spoon and enjoy!

I have never tried making a marmalade and for the first time this is a very good recipe. The only thing I did different is add some vanilla and I cooked with white grape juice instead of water, next time I think I will use orange juice instead of water, for a little more citrus taste. I defiantly will make another batch.
