With so many people challenged by this problem, wouldn’t it be great if there were a simple and delicious remedy?

For years, people have touted ginger roots’ ability to soothe an upset stomach and it has shown promising results in clinical trials. So if you or someone you know suffers from motion sickness, why not get a bottle of Sunrise Ginger Syrup, make up some ginger tea and sip it while you travel? Beat motion sickness with a delicious, refreshing drink!


“Is it alright to substitute ingredients?” We sometimes get this question from people we share our recipes with and, though substituting ingredients is always a matter of personal taste and preference, we highly recommend that our sauces be used with our recipes since we crafted them around our signature gourmet sauces.

Our Ginger Syrup, Jerk Sauce, Brown Sugar Syrup and Palava Sauce all have very unique flavor profiles and each recipe is designed to use those flavor profiles to their fullest. Other sauces and syrups don’t use the same ingredients, aren’t composed the same way and, therefore, don’t taste the same. So if you find some of our recipes interesting, please make sure to use the Kilimanjaro sauce or syrup mentioned in the recipe for maximum flavor.

This fruit compote with ginger syrup is a delicious dessert, especially in the summer months when you can easily find fresh fruit.

Kilimanjaro Foods’ ginger syrup recipe uses perfect blend of ginger root and sugar to produce a flavor that is neither overly sweet nor overly spicy. The result of adding the ginger syrup to the fruit is a delightfully spicy-sweet taste that kids especially love.


1 cup Strawberries stemmed and halved
1 cup peaches
1/2 cup Kilimanjaro Ginger Syrup
1/8 tsp Salt
2 tbs cold water
1 tbs corn starch

Cook the strawberries and peaches in Ginger Syrup over low heat for 3 minuets. Mix corn starch and water together to form a slurry then stir in the berries and simmer for 30 seconds. Chill and serve. Try serving this over shortcake, pound cake, or ice cream.

Be sure to ask your local grocer to carry Kilimanjaro’s line of gourmet sauces

ginger syrup

Kilimanjaro Foods’ Sunrise Ginger Syrup could be the most adaptable product we’ve created. A perfect blend of fresh ginger root, sugar, water, and just the right additional spices and flavors, our Ginger Syrup adds a spicy-sweet zest to any food or drink.

The unique flavors this syrup offers can be used to enhance everything from meats to cereals and tea to champagne…or anything in between. The spicy nip of ginger root is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of sugar and other flavors to offer a delightful seasoning that everyone from children to adults will enjoy.

Below are just a few examples of the delicious and creative uses we’ve found for this versatile condiment.

Ginger Tea:
We add ¼ cup (you can add more or less depending on preference) of Kilimanjaro Sunrise Ginger Syrup to ¾ cup of our favorite tea. The spicy sweetness of the syrup adds a delicious and refreshing twist for iced tea but also brings a warm coziness to hot tea on a cold winter’s day.

Strawberry Ginger Smoothie:
Add a wonderful zest to this smoothie classic.
1/2 cup Soy or Skim Milk
1/2 Banana
3 Strawberries
3 oz Ginger Syrup
1/3 cup Ice crushed (about 3 cubes)

Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.

Fruit Salad with Ginger Syrup (single serving):

½ banana cut up
½ apple cut into slices
½ cup of grapes cut in half
½ cup chopped walnuts
¾ teaspoon of Ginger Syrup
Mix ingredients with a fork or spoon to allow syrup to become evenly distributed. Enjoy!

This was just a sneak peek at the diversity of uses this product has. There are many more recipes to explore and we’ll be adding more to Sauce Talk over time. The key ingredient in all of our recipes is creativity so get some Kilimanjaro Ginger Syrup and experiment with some of your favorite foods. We always welcome any new and delicious uses for our sauces so if you whip up something especially tasty, let us know in the comments section of the recipes page.

As an example, we received a question about whether or not any of our sauces tasted good on cereal. Naturally, Susie thought of the Ginger Syrup so we ran to the kitchen and made up a bowl of Cheerios™. We mixed 1 teaspoon of Ginger Syrup into the cereal and found it added a light, sweetness with a hint of spice. We both enjoyed the flavor and so we made a note of that and will probably continue to experiment with other cereals in the near future. There truly is no limit to what you can do with Kilimanjaro’s sauces.

Be sure to ask your local grocer to carry our sauces.

Have a fun and delicious time experimenting!
