Welcome to blue-ginger and our showcase for talented artists and craftspeople.
Our gallery is situated in the grounds of a timber framed farmhouse just four miles from the Malvern Hills. We offer a beautiful and diverse range of products specially selected to suit a range of budgets. Limited edition cards, prints, pottery, paintings and even hand-crafted chocolate can all be found here. And in addition to serving fair-trade coffee and tea, we also offer homemade cakes and delicious light lunches.
Adjacent to the main gallery, you will find contemporary jewellery by SilverFish Designs and the specialist services of
mi-frame picture framing. These, together with our Summer House display space and the events that regularly take place, make blue-ginger a very special place to visit. We hope to see you soon.
We're starting to get lots of beautiful items in which would make great Christmas gifts. Take a look at our specific page for Christmas in our online shop. We are happy to ship internationally - please contact us for delivery cost quotes !
Here’s my end-of-the year gift to all of you: my secret recipe for the blue-ginger
gluten-free pear and ginger cake!
PEAR & GINGER
Gluten-Free and Vegan
250 gm vegan spread
200 gm brown or muscovado sugar
1/2 jar stem ginger chopped into small pieces with 1/2 of the syrup
200 gm ground almonds
100 gm polenta
100 gm rice flour
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Enough almond milk or other dairy-free milk to mix
Put all the ingredients ink a bowl and mix together. At the end add a capful of white vinegar
Put into a paper-lined cake tin
Slice a large pear (or two small ones) and arrange on the top
Chop some crystallised ginger and scatter over the pears
Dot some ginger jam in the gaps between the pears
Bake at about 190 degrees for about an hour or until cooked
Delicious as a pudding with a vegan creme fraiche or ice cream. Off course , if you’re not vegan you can replace vegan spread with butter and serve with a dollop of creme fraiche or custard or ice cream.
