I have about 3 cups of ginger syrup from making candied ginger and I don't know how to use it! I did a PPK search and here's what I've found, but I'd love some more ideas:

-in oatmeal or over ice cream
-ginger ale
-in rhubarb pie
-in almond milk as a hot drink

My other question is how long does this stuff last? Can you keep it in the fridge or will the sugar crystallize out?

Thanks in advance!

Yes! I have the perfect recipe: my very favorite type of Vietnamese che--sweet mochi-like dumplings stuffed with mung bean paste and swimming in ginger syrup and coconut cream! It's a perfect combo of sweet/spicy/savory/creamy.

Try this recipe or, if you want one that's a little simpler, try this one.

Or you can try another of my favorite desserts. More mochi dumplings! This time filled with crushed black sesame seeds. Try this recipe (obviously replace the butter or leave it out). Actually, I think this recipe looks the best.

Maybe something like a moscow mule with club soda and ginger syrup instead of ginger beer.

Seconded. I was addicted to this last summer.
