So I have been strongly influenced by a special someone in my life, haha. He adores ginger (and lingon berries) so of course I was inspired to do ginger everything. After I had tried some ginger marmelade my boyfriend had made – he is very into cooking as well – I just had to make some myself. Especially when my mum is addicted to anything containing ginger. Her ginger shots are so strong so they actually make me feel slightly sick, hehe.
Guess what ginger is more than supposedly very healthy? An extremely delicous ingredient to pair with anything from chocolate to coconut. Add some ginger to that a voilà, a beautiful, fresh, quick and easy treat.
