DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and sterilize 5 half-pint canning jars and rings.
  • Combine all ingredients except ginger root.
  • Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is of spreading consistency.
  • Spoon hot mixture into hot sterilized jars to within 1/2-inch from top.
  • Slice ginger root (no need to peel) into 5 slices. Add a slice of ginger to each jar, pushing it into the preserves.
  • Seal with new lids and rings and process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from water and listen for "ping" to make sure the jars seal. Store in a cool, dark spot. Let sit to age and get ginger flavor melded, for about 1-2 weeks before using.
