Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Peel the ginger, and cut it into thin slices.
  2. Let these slices sit in a bowl of cold water for an hour.
  3. Drain the ginger. Cover again with cold water.
  4. Boil this for 5 minutes.
  5. Repeat for three times: drain the ginger; cover again with cold water; bring to the boil and boil for 5 minutes.
  6. This process weakens the fibers of the ginger.
  7. Finally, just drain the ginger.
  8. Bring the sugar and water to a boil, and pour this over the drained ginger.
  9. Cover and let it infuse for 12 hours.
  10. Drain this, and keep the syrup. Boil the syrup for 10 minutes, and pour it over the ginger.
  11. Put a lid on this mix, and let it sit for 2 days.
  12. Boil everything together for 5 minutes, then let this sit for 3 days. Using a slotted spoon, lift out the ginger, and spread the pieces out over waxed paper, as though you plan to dry these slices.
  13. Sprinkle extra sugar over these pieces to coat them.
  14. Put in a jar and keep in a cool, dry place.
