How to Make Candied Ginger (Crystallized Ginger) 

Ginger, a staple in many kitchens, can be transformed into a delightful confection known as candied ginger or crystallized ginger.

Ingredients Fresh ginger root Granulated sugar Water Pinch of salt

Start by peeling the ginger root. Slice it into thin rounds, about 1/8-inch thick.


In a large pot, boil water. Add ginger slices for 30 seconds, then drain and rinse. This mellows the ginger's strong spice.


In the same pot, combine 4 cups of water and 4 cups of sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves, and bring the mixture to a simmer.


Add the blanched ginger slices and a pinch of salt to the sugar syrup. Let it simmer for 45 minutes or until the ginger becomes translucent.


Drain the ginger slices and spread them out on a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Allow them to dry for at least 24 hours.


Once dried, toss the ginger slices in granulated sugar to coat them evenly.
