READY IN: 1hr 40mins
YIELD: 1 pint




  • Peel and slice ginger into 2 inch lenghts and 1/8th inch thick. Using a Mandoline Slicer will give you uniform slices with ease and quickness.
  • Toss sugar and ginger together.
  • In a large heavy bottom pan heat water add sugared ginger and bring to a very slow simmer.
  • Stir over low heat occasionally for 1 and 1/2 hours.
  • The ginger will become translucent and the sugar will crystallize on the edge of the pan.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar on parchment paper or a silicone mat. Lay drained ginger on sugar. Toss the sugar when ginger has cooled enough to handle (about 10 minutes) to coat evenly.
  • Place in a air tight container out of heat and light.
  • The yummy sugar that is left over can be saved in a jar and used for tea, sugar the rim of glasses drinks or in baking cookies or cakes.
  • And for the left over syrup add 1 cup water heat to mix and use as you would corn syrup.
