This is the best ginger marmalade that I have ever tasted. Recently disappointed with the texture and aftertaste of another ginger marmalade, I searched for a homemade ginger marmalade and found only one very inadequate recipe. I created my own based on an orange marmalade recipe, and it turned out great.
This ginger marmalade is great on top of peanut butter toast. It can also be used as a glaze for ham or chicken, substituted for any jam in baking or as a dip for lamb instead of mint jelly. I just used the ginger that was available in the grocery store. I picked the freshest ginger that I could and it was fine.
