Is crystallised ginger the same thing as glace ginger?

(3 Posts)

I have a gingerbread recipe I'd like to try, which includes 50g of crystallised ginger. Can't find it in the supermarket, but have found glace ginger. Do any of you know if this is the same stuff?

Thanks for your help.

this suggests they are the same.
I've got a gingerbread recipe with crystallised ginger. Its yummy. Hope yours is as good.

Oh brilliant, thank you! The recipe I found is out of a free baking booklet that came with the Saturday Telegraph a few weeks ago. It suggests serving it with poached pears, so doing it as a dessert for a dinner party tomorrow (very good friends so won't matter too much if its a disaster!).
