Thanks Diana!! Finally got to try it, it went over big!! You're right about the hand slapping. I have hidden the rest for Christmas. Well worth doing, if not a little time comsumming. Love it and didn't change a thing, even did the sugar extra swirl. Thanks again for a good one!!!

Nice recipe. I made it with old ginger the first time so it was too spicy. but it was tasty nonetheless. I dusted some cinnamon along with the sugar.

i swear, someone slipped some sort of addictive narcotics into the ginger.... so delicious!! i didn't stir nearly constantly, and it seemed to turn out a-ok. i will definately be making this again :)

I shook the sticky ginger in a ziplock bag until I could feel that the pieces were coated then continued drying on racks. The remaining sugar had a good scent of ginger so I kept that to use in other recipes. Thanks for posting!

This is yummy. My ginger was older too, so it was strong. I have been using it chopped up in oatmeal cookies and other places where raisins could be used. Oh so good!

I didn't want to spend what the stores were asking just to find out if I like crystallized ginger, so made this recipe and LOVE it! I used very fresh ginger, but it was naturally spicy so the candies are also. I put the syrup (without further cooking to reduce it) over vanilla ice cream and we loved that too! If the ginger weren't so spicy I would have reduced the syrup just a bit, but this way even those in the family who don't like spicy stuff can eat it.

My grandmother loves this stuff (and so do I), but it's expensive to buy in the store. Fresh ginger, however, is DIRT CHEAP so I made her a huge batch of this for Christmas, and also bottled the remaining syrup in a jar for her to use as it too was delicious! Great recipe - Thanks!

Oh I just love this stuff! I used 1 cup of ginger, next time will do more. Easy, and makes a great snack!
