Pineapple and Candied Ginger Pudding

This pudding is a great way to finish an Asian inspired meal and a great winter comfort food. It contrasts perfectly with the texture and coolness of the cinnamon ice cream.
In recent years, the production of ginger in Australia has increased dramatically, particularly in preserved ginger.
