I just finished making my 3rd batch of this yummy jam. I took some of the 1st batch to work and it was gone in minutes.

I didn't have any fresh ginger on hand, but figured I'd give it a try anyway with just the dry ginger. Still really liked it! Have been enjoying it with a bit of butter on whole wheat toast. Yummy!
