I am looking for crystallized ginger! I KNOW I've seen it somewhere for not-so-expensive (the spice aisle in the grocery aisle is robbery!). But I can't remember where! I sent DH to Ocean State...he couldn't find it. And by the time I get in my car and drive all over the place, it kind of defeats the purpose of trying to save a couple of bucks... So, does anybody know??? I'm thinking Aldi's or Trader joes maybe? Costco? Gah! I'm racking my brain! Can anyone help??
Frugal, grocery saavy mamas - I need recipe ingredient help for Thanksgiving!
In case this helps anyone else...the small bottle of McCormick's crystallized ginger is over $10 a bottle!!! I was going to need two bottles. Well, turns out that in the produce section, next to the dried fruit and raisins, you can get a bag of crystallized ginger (7 oz, so 2.5 x the Mc Cormick bottles) for $2.99. SCORE. May not be as "good", but I think I'm okay with that, considering I just saved myself $18 that I was going to spend on cranberry sauce! (yes, it really is that good!)
