First, I wanted to start by saying that these glazed lemon-ginger scones were really amazing and I had four of them right out of the oven, and the next morning, I ate more!
Ginger has always been my favorite ingredient. I always have some ginger in my kitchen. In Asian cooking, especially Chinese, ginger is indispensable and used in many stir-fry’s, stews and soups. According to the Chinese, ginger promises many medicinal benefits, for example: anti-inflammatory, blood circulation, digestion, and even cancer fighting benefits.
Anyway, the idea of having ginger in scones is very remote to me, until I saw this glazed lemon-ginger scones recipe on the Food & Wine magazine that uses candied ginger. I was intrigued by the idea and so I made these, with great success.
If you don’t like too much sugar on your scones, you can skip the glazed and they still taste great.
