Where to purchase ginger in syrup?

There was a nice feijoa, date & ginger loaf recipe in today's "Your Weekend" lift-out. However, the recipe required either crystallised ginger or ginger in syrup. I am OK with finding the crystallised ginger in the baking section, but if I chose to use the ginger in syrup where would I find this in the supermarket?

Which would give the mildest flavour - the crystallised or the syrup version?

Try an Asian food store for the ginger in syrup. Not too sure off hand about the mildest flavour. I like crystallised in baking etc myself

Yes look in Asian food stores, usually in a china jar - and personally I think its milder in the syrup rather than crystallised.

I got some in NW in a glass jar in the pickles section, have also purchased at the Asian store

Love this organic ginger syrup, its yummy over deserts, cakes, pancakes etc, mild also buy it local and its popular.

Countdown (Johnsonville) has it with all the other Asian type foods.

I bought some from Nosh - that was a few years ago now, but assume they would still stock it.

put a quarter cup of sugar in a pan with a cup of sugar melt slowly with out stirring when boiling put your ginger in and and boil for a 5/6 minutes then remove to dry onto a greases and sugared tray to dry . you can slice your ginger before you do this for ease of using . if you like it spicy add a tea spoon of dry ginger or grate a finger of green ginger into it for a fresh taste

Don't you mean ¼ cup water with the cup sugar?
