Hands-on time 25 mins
Total time 25 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
Serve as is for a light dessert, or omit the gingersnaps and spoon clementines and syrup over pound cake slices.


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 (1/4-inch-thick) fresh ginger slices, peeled
  • 4 to 6 peeled and sliced clementines
  • Gingersnaps

How to Make It

  1. Bring sugar, ginger, and 3 Tbsp. water to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; discard ginger.

  2. Pour syrup over clementine sections. Serve with gingersnaps.

  3. Note: Clementines will not have juice to add to the syrup, but there will still be enough syrup at the end of Step 1 to coat fruit.
