Expert Tips

Crystallized ginger is fresh gingerroot that has been cooked in a sugar syrup, then coated with sugar. It has that great ginger bite along with the sweet flavor.

Pound cake freezes beautifully. Wrap the cooled cake in heavy-duty foil, then place it in a resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to one month.
