Something spectacularly gingery!

ursy_ten | Dec 22, 201005:27 AM

Hi everyone,

My mum is one of those people who is very hard to buy for. She is getting old, doesn't do much, has everything she needs or wants... well, you get the idea.

But she does love ginger!

So I had a brainwave. I need to find something spectacularly gingery to make her for Christmas. No need to be shy with the flavour, she has been saying that nothing tastes the same as it did when she was younger... so gingery flavour explosions are welcome because I think her taste buds don't work as well as they used to.

If it helps, she loves hard candy, like peanut brittle (just an idea, but do share your non-hard-candy-ish ideas as well).

It's kind of bittersweet, as she is showing the signs of dementia, and it's been progressing at an alarming rate the last couple of months. So this may be the last Christmas I have where she can enjoy such a gift... I don't know... but nonetheless, I want to make it special, just in case.

Many thanks in advance for any ideas you might have.

And may you and yours have a wonderful and blessed holiday season. x
