Chinese Ginger Sauces
One of my favorite dipping sauces is the delicious ginger sauce that is served in Chinese restaurants when you order potstickers (aka Peking Ravioli) but it is wonderful with anything. This is my version.
Combine all in a small bowl, cover and allow to sit in fridge for at least an hour so flavors have time to blend.
Here is another variation. This one is sweeter, thicker and full of ginger flavor. I also got to play around with some potent ground ginger that I ordered from Penzeys Spices. Trust me when I say that this is nothing like the grocery store stuff we've all learned to avoid. If you don't have just substitute 2 tablespoons of fresh as in the recipe above.
Combine all except cornstarch in a small saucepan and simmer gently for about 15 minutes. Add cornstarch mixture and stir until slightly thickened. Allow to cool completely before serving.
