My new favorite condiment is pressed Ginger Juice, made by The Ginger People (the same folks who put out a delicious line of candied Australian ginger ). Just a dash of ginger juice packs all the warmth and zing of fresh ginger, and you can use it the same way. Add Ginger Juice to soy-sesame vinaigrettes, curried eggplant, beef or chicken marinades, dried fruit compotes, applesauce, or wherever else you’d use ginger. And because it’s liquid, you can use it to spike a banana-peach smoothie, a glass of iced tea or lemonade, a cup of hot cider, and even a vodka martini.
