  1. After trying a few traditional Ginger Gem recipes I had, these are by far the best…gorgeous flavour and colour and moist.
    I added a tsp of mixed spice the ginger to make a hint of difference. They have a large amount of golden syrup but it is worth it!!! Yumm..
    Made 23 gems!

  2. This is the best gem recipe I have found- easy to make. I made 23 good size gems with this size mix (filling the gem iron to just under the top)- and I will defiantly be making these again- If you are looking for a good recipe give this one a try. Thanks
