    About this recipe: This may sound like an unusual recipe, but try it and then decide. Eggs are lightly poached in and served with a homemade ginger syrup. Serve as a delicious, yet different dessert.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 750ml water
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 1 (5cm) piece fresh root ginger, peeled and sliced
    • 4 small eggs

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Combine the water and sugar together in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; add the ginger slices and cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
    2. Crack the eggs into individual bowls and gently drop them into the syrup. Cook the eggs on one side until the white is partially set and opaque, about 3 1/2 minutes; gently turn over to cook the other side until egg whites are opaque but not hard and the yolk is still liquid, about 3 1/2 more minutes or to desired doneness. Spoon the eggs into individual bowls and spoon syrup over each egg. Garnish with the cooked ginger.

    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)
