I selected this to make for the strawberry swap. Everyone should make it... was yummy. I couldn't find candied ginger in syrup so I made my own. It's so much better then purchased. and the syrup was outstanding. I have some left and will use it for pancakes or tea. Thanks for a great treat Pam and thanks for trying one of my recipes.
