Ginger Sauce for Ice Cream

August 18, 2007


Need a quick last-minute dessert? This one is so easy and so good you’ll want to keep the ingredients on hand just for emergencies. Serve it over chocolate or vanilla or peach ice cream, any flavor really. I can’t think of one it wouldn’t taste great on. SAM

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup half-and-half
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup finely chopped candied ginger

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, half-and-half, butter, and ginger. Bring to a rolling boil, remove from the heat, and stir to cool slightly. Serve over ice cream.
Makes 8 servings.
