  2. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/2 cup juice; set aside 1/4 cup of pineapple juice (refrigerate remaining pineapple and juice for another use). In a saucepan, combine cornstarch and reserved pineapple juice until smooth.
  3. Stir in the pineapple, orange marmalade, lemon juice and remaining ginger. Bring the mixture to a boil; cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened.
