Mrs. Bridges Ginger Preserve with Malt Whisky: Product Review

Mrs. Bridges Ginger Preserve with Malt Whisky is a sweet and spicy palate-tickler.

Open the jar and breathe deeply for a heady ginger scent. You could simply enjoy it on your favorite slice of sourdough toast, but it is brilliant served as a condiment with duck, pork, turkey, or any white meat. Here are a few more suggestions for savoring this little delight:

Spoon a cup into a saucepan with a couple of tablespoons whisky, cider, or water, and a few tablespoons of brown sugar; stir until heated through, then use it as a glaze to add a little zing to a dish.

For a unique holiday appetizer, serve this thick, but spreadable preserve with a silky paté and a savory cracker.

Try a dollop on a cheese plate with marcona almonds, candied ginger, and a selection of artisanal cheese.

Swirl a half cup into your favorite scone recipe with a handful of white chocolate chips for a fragrant, chewy treat.

Mrs. Bridges uses a traditional approach to making marmalades and preserves: without additives, and slowly boiled in open, copper-bottomed pans. This family run company is based in Arbroath on the east coast of Scotland.
