    Sharon123's Note:

    From Good Eats, episode: Ginger: Rise of the Rhizome. I might try adding a vanilla bean to the simmering water next time. Or how about adding a little lemon peel? The candied ginger is also good dipped in dark or bittersweet chocolate.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pound

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Spray a cooling rack with nonstick spray and set it in a half sheet pan lined with parchment.
    2. 2
      Peel the ginger root(use the back of a spoon, it gets into all the grooves) and slice into 1/8-inch thick slices using a mandoline. Place into a 4-quart saucepan with the water and set over medium-high heat. Cover and cook for 35 minutes or until the ginger is tender.
    3. 3
      Transfer the ginger to a colander to drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Weigh the ginger and measure out an equal amount of sugar. Return the ginger and 1/4 cup water to the pan and add the sugar. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar syrup looks dry, has almost evaporated and begins to recrystallize, approximately 20-40 minutes. Make sure you continously stir. It may feel like you've been stirring the ginger forever, but when it starts to crystallize, it will happen very quickly.
    4. 4
      Transfer the ginger immediately to the cooling rack and spread to separate the individual pieces. Once completely cool, store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Save the sugar that drops beneath the cooling rack and use to top ginger snaps, sprinkled over ice cream or to sweeten coffee.
    5. 5
      Any liquid can be used to flavor tea or used for hot tea. Some people said they had to cook it longer. It's worth every minute. :).
