DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the ginger, and cut it into thin slices.
  • Let these slices sit in a bowl of cold water for an hour.
  • Drain the ginger. Cover again with cold water.
  • Boil this for 5 minutes.
  • Repeat for three times: drain the ginger; cover again with cold water; bring to the boil and boil for 5 minutes.
  • This process weakens the fibers of the ginger.
  • Finally, just drain the ginger.
  • Bring the sugar and water to a boil, and pour this over the drained ginger.
  • Cover and let it infuse for 12 hours.
  • Drain this, and keep the syrup. Boil the syrup for 10 minutes, and pour it over the ginger.
  • Put a lid on this mix, and let it sit for 2 days.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle extra sugar over these pieces to coat them.
  • Put in a jar and keep in a cool, dry place.
