Can I use powdered ginger in place of ginger in making a syrup to put on a fruit salad?
I'm making a fruit salad with peaches, blueberries and mint. Had planned on making a syrup with thyme and ginger to mix with the fruit, but I don't have any ginger. Wondering if I can do the same thing with powdered ginger.

I forgot to say, use about half the ground ginger as you would if fresh.
You can. The results will be similar but will lack a certain something.
