You Will Need
- 3 1/2 oz. unsalted butter
- Fresh ginger
- 7 oz. brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 1/2 oz. self-rising flour
- Vanilla ice cream
- Olive oil
- Dried red chilies
- Bay leaves
- 4 1-c. ramekins
- Garlic press
Make ginger pudding
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and melt the butter in a saucepan. Remove the melted butter from the heat and add 1 tablespoon grated ginger and half of the brown sugar. Stir it up and add the eggs, stirring after each egg. Then mix in the flour and divide the mixture between 4 ramekins.
Bake the pudding
Combine the remaining brown sugar with 1 cup boiling water and pour it over the cake mixture in the ramekins. Loosely cover them with aluminum foil and bake them for 25 minutes, and then remove the foil and bake them for an additional five minutes. Serve the pudding hot with vanilla ice cream.
Thinly slice a 1-inch section of ginger, put the slices in a cup, and pour boiling water over it to make ginger tea. Let the tea steep for a few minutes and serve it with honey.
Make a ginger marinade
Finely grate fresh ginger root and add it to olive oil, dried red chilies, cinnamon, cloves, bay leaves, and onions for a spicy, tangy marinade.
Add flavor to favorite dishes
Add a hint of ginger to your favorite recipes that use cooking oil. Slice three or four 1/8-inch rounds of ginger and whack them with the side of a knife to break up the fibers and release essential oils. Add them to the heated oil, and fry them over medium heat for about 30 seconds. Remove the ginger and use the infused oil for your recipe.
Make ginger juice
Peel and slice 1-inch sections of ginger, put them in a garlic press, and squeeze the juice out for added flavor in any dish.
Include fresh ginger in your diet to relieve discomfort caused by an upset stomach. Enjoy the varied uses of ginger.
