Notes:

  • Some stores sell bags of drumettes and/or wings that have already been separated. This is a time saver if you can find them.
  • I used Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves.
  • Crystallized ginger can usually be found in the bulk bin aisle or the baking section.

In case you were wondering, this is what crystallized ginger looks like…..

It is thin slices of fresh ginger that have been preserved with sugar. That’s it, two ingredients.
