I already had 95 percent of the ingredients for this {and tomorrows post 🙂 } in my grocery cart when I got to the produce section and found there was only nubs of fresh ginger left… WHAT?! This crap allllllways happens to me!

So I wasn’t about to go back through the store putting stuff back on the shelves… so I just decided to sub with some dry ginger instead of the fresh. Which was good… don’t get me wrong, but I like zee fresh. OH! And then, when I got home I realized I forgot the pineapple juice. I know… I wanted to cry. Instead I took a gamble and used my girls white grape juice… and it wasn’t too shabby. However… I’ll stick to the pineapple juice in the future. It’s just feels right.

Start by adding the fresh garlic to the blender or food processor.  I gave it a smash and rough chop before adding it in and pulsing a few times. If you’re using fresh ginger {which I hope you are :)} then peel and roughly chop that too! Then add in the brown sugar, spices and the half cup of tamari.

Blend until all the ingredients are mixed and the sugar dissolved.

Pour it into a large jar along with the pineapple juice, shake and *poof* thurrr you go. This can hang out in your fridge for a loooong time, like a month or two or more! I usually use it up before that long of a time BUT the flavors only deepen the longer it refrigerates!

Wait until you see what I made with this tomorrow!!
