Candied Ginger
 
ginger 
water 
sugar 
 
peel the ginger and slice it into rounds about 1/8 inch thick. for every 
cup of ginger slices, bring 3 cups water and 3 cups sugar to a boil in a 
large sauce pan. when the sugar is completely dissolved, add the ginger 
and boil for 45 minutes, until the ginger is sweet and tender. drain the 
ginger, reserving the liquid. place the ginger on a rack to dry for 30 
minutes, then toss it with enough granulated sugar to coat. let it dry 
on wax paper and then store in an airtight container. 
 
boil the reserved liquid until it is reduced to a syrup 
with a consistency somewhere between maple syrup and honey. this will 
intensify its flavor. this syrup can be used for pancakes, waffles, or 
ice cream, and is an extra bonus for making your own candied ginger. 
 
the ginger is delicious eaten as candy, and can also be used in recipes 
calling for candied ginger. if you don't want to make it yourself but 
don't want to spend a fortune for it, look in an asian grocery store, 
where the price will be much less than it is at the supermarket.
