This is an easy recipe to make and it smelled beautifully fragrant while it was cooking. I didn't have a vanilla bean, but I did have vanilla bean paste so I substituted a teaspoon for the bean and also I only used about an inch and a half of ginger. It has a delicate flavor and I think it will be perfect paired with some nice French Brie and a baguette. I am going to make more, as I think it will make perfect gifts for the holiday for my family and friends.
Such a wonderfully delicate flavour. We decided to go with this recipe over other because of the added ingredient (ginger, vanilla & cinnamon). A few minor substitutions: 3 Tbsp of vanilla, 2 Tbsp of pre-grated ginger. Still, amazing. We got 9 250ml jars from our batch (sadly, one was lost in the water bath).
