DIRECTIONS

  • Boil over medium heat until ginger is tender, about 30 minutes. Drain and cool.
  • Measure ginger slivers and place in saucepan with equal amounts of sugar (about 3 cups) plus 3 tblsps of water. Simmer ginger slowly until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until ginger becomes transparent and syrup has nearly evaporated.
  • Remove several slivers at a time with slotted spoon and place in paper bag containing 1/2 cup sugar. Shake to coat with sugar then remove to dry on waxed paper.
  • Store in an airtight glass jar.
