    Syrup spiked with ginger goes great with poached eggs. This is a very simple and luxurious dessert to spring on your guests. Try and find small chicken eggs, also known as pullet eggs. Normal sized eggs will work as well.

    I WAS NOT QUITE SURE WHEN I MADE THESE, SOUNDED A LITTLE STRANGE, BUT I LOVE TO TRY NEW THINGS. AT FIRST THE "SYRUP" WAS VERY WATERY, SO I REDUCED IT DOWN FOR ABOUT AN HOUR BEFORE I PROCEDED WITH THE RECIPE. UNBELIEVABLE! WE NEVER MADE IT TO DINNER, ATE A DOZEN! WILL DEFIINATELY MAKE AGAIN.

    Had a very mild flavor, I was expecting it to be sweeter- but this may be how they do it!! I prefer heavier desserts!  -  17 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
