Ginger Glazed Fruit

  This recipe from the Land O Lakes Flavors of Spring is versatile in the fruit it calls for. Use your favorite fruit from what is available in your area. The difference in the recipe from many similar recipes is the use of gingerroot. I keep a jar of fresh minced gingerroot on hand in my refrigerator. Earthbound Farm is the brand I have on hand now. However it is not easy to find.  Regular grated fresh gingerroot is what the recipe calls for. That is fairly wide spread in groceries now days. The picture shows the fruit I used this time, cantaloupe, strawberries, blueberries and pineapple. Our HyVee store has containers of fresh pineapple for sale. It is a little pricey but there is no way we would eat a whole fresh pineapple. I am sure canned in juice pineapple would work as well.
