Brown Sugar Ginger Sauce


The inspiration for this sauce comes from a dessert The Slanted Door in San Francisco used to sell.  It was a house made tapioca pudding, drizzled in a dark sauce and topped with diced fruit.  It was divine.  I was sad when they quit selling the dessert so I set out to make the sauce on my own.  Warning:  This sauce is highly addictive and, once you try it, you will start looking for things on which to drizzle its dark, golden goodness.


Brown Sugar Ginger Sauce

1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger root (not powdered)
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup molasses
¼ cup orange juice
1 teaspoon butter

Place all ingredients in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat.  Stir to combine well.  Stir occasionally until boiling.  Boil around 30 seconds.  Remove from heat , whisk in butter and let cool.  Drizzle on ice cream, coconut sticky rice, pudding or other desserts.  This pairs very well with vanilla flavors.  Store covered in refrigerator.

Eat Well!
