      Fantastic recipe! Thank you!!! So simple. I am living in Uruguay and can't find candied ginger. I hadn't thought of making it until I ran across this recipe, so thank you. I doubled the batch and it took about twice the cooking time. After removing the ginger I added orange peel to the sugar sauce and made candied orange peel. It tasted amazing! I dipped the candied ginger and orange peel in chocolate and made scones! I used the sugar sauce to make caramel (added butter and cream) was some of the best caramel I've ever had. I also made a drink: orange juice, sparkling water and sugar sauce...yummy. Oh, I used a spoon to peel my ginger...put the front of the spoon towards you and scrape the skin off (you're using the edge of the top of the spoon to scrap). I couldn't believe how easy this made to peel the ginger.

      Awesome! This is one of those things I always bought and wondered, "how do they make that?" Now I've made my own candied ginger, and it's WAY better! About to use it in my fruitcake. Never had the syrup before, but how awesome... just mixed some with a little orange juice, vanilla vodka, chocolate liqueur, ground cloves, and cinnamon, and had an awesome gingerbread martini! The first of many...

      Great recipe! I could not believe how easy it was to make candied ginger. I used for baking and the syrup is wonderful in mixed drinks. Thanks for posting.
