EASY GINGER CANDY RECIPE + VIDEO
- Peel the ginger root and slice into 1/8 inch rounds.
- Place the ginger slices in a large 6 quart sauce pot. Add the water. Bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes to soften the ginger.
- Remove the lid and check the liquid levels. There should be approximately 1/4 - 1/3 cup of water in the bottom of the pot. If needed, scoop out some water with a ladle, or add water, to make sure you have about ¼ cup in the pot.
- Stir in the sugar and salt. Bring the sugar syrup to a simmer. Simmer, stirring regularly, for 15-20 minutes, until the syrup starts to crystalize. The color will range from pale cream to golden. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
- Set out a baking rack. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Use tongs to move the ginger pieces to the rack, spreading out in a single layer.
- Allow the ginger to rest for 2-4 hours, until all the pieces are dry.
- Place in an airtight container. The ginger candy will last for at least 1 month if kept in a cool dry place.

- Cut ginger into 2-inch pieces and slice lengthwise into 1/8-inch slices. Score ginger slices by pricking with a fork.
- Toss ginger with sugar in a bowl.
- Combine ginger-sugar mixture and water in a large skillet or wok; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar melts into a syrup and starts to crystallize, about 1 hour. Continue stirring until syrup is mostly crystallized and ginger comes together in a pile in the center of the skillet and very little syrup drains out; remove from heat.
- Toss ginger slices gently to cool and separate from excess sugar. Spread slices out on a tray to cool and dry.

CRYSTALLIZED CANDY GINGER
Crystallized ginger is the secret ingredient to my favourite pound cake. It was available briefly and then disappeared off the shelves. I have made this version a few times and find it excellent. I do not include the 8-10 hour drying time in the prep.

- Spray a cooling rack with nonstick spray and set it in a half sheet pan lined with parchment.
- Peel the ginger root and slice into 1/8-inch thick slices using a mandoline. Place into a 4-quart saucepan with the water and set over medium-high heat. Cover and cook for 35 minutes or until the ginger is tender.
- Transfer the ginger to a colander to drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Weigh the ginger and measure out an equal amount of sugar. Return the ginger and 1/4 cup water to the pan and add the sugar. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar syrup looks dry, has almost evaporated and begins to recrystallize, approximately 20 minutes. Transfer the ginger immediately to the cooling rack and spread to separate the individual pieces. Once completely cool, store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Save the sugar that drops beneath the cooling rack and use to top ginger snaps, sprinkled over ice cream or to sweeten coffee.
- In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil over medium heat; continue boiling, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, with a paring knife, slice ginger crosswire very thinly (about 1/8 inch thick). You should have about 1 cup.
- Add ginger slices to pan; simmer over medium-low heat until translucent and tender, 20 to 25 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer ginger to a wire rack set over a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper; spread pieces so they are not touching. Let drain. Reserve ginger syrup (let cool; refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 month).
- Pour 1/4 cup sugar into a small bowl; coat ginger slices, 1 or 2 at a time, in sugar. Store in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 1 month.
CRYSTALLIZED CANDIED GINGER
Candied ginger is delicious served as a sweet snack with tea, as a garnish, or mixed into a variety of baked goods or pastries! Be sure the ginger root is very fresh: unblemished, smooth light brown and no wrinkles. Sightly adapted from my friend Caroline's recipe. Note: The repeated blanching is in order to boil out the sharpness of the ginger. If your ginger is not too sharp, you may only need to blanch it once or twice. It helps to have a second opinion on this.

- Peel the ginger using a sharp-edged teaspoon (or a small knife) -- yep that is the easiest way, just scrape it toward you and all comes off. In the joints just break apart the pieces to get all the peeling.
- Now slice it in 1/4-inch-thick slices -- I used the Cuisinart since I was doing so much but you can use a mandoline or sharp knife.
- Place the slices in a large nonreactive saucepan with cold water to cover, bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes. Drain, cover with fresh cold water, boil, and again cook 15 minutes. Repeat this blanching process 2 more times, for a total of 4 blanchings in all.
- After the last blanching, drain and cover with 6 cups of fresh cold water and 3 cups of sugar. Slowly bring the syrup to a boil, stirring often, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the ginger is translucent and the syrup is thickened, about 20-30 minutes; watch carefully. Remove from heat.
- You now have Canton candied ginger and can store it this way (in it's syrup, in a sterilized jar with a tight fitting lid, and refrigerated) for practically forever.
- Or, for crystallized ginger, let stand for about 30 minutes, for the ginger to absorb more syrup. Then you can take the pieces of ginger from the syrup and toss it in granulated sugar and put it on a rack (or on a parchment lined baking sheet) to dry, uncovered at room temperature, for at least 8 hours or overnight, until the sugar coating is firm and the slices are no longer sticky. This also keeps for at least a year, stored in a cool dry place in an airtight container.
- Notes: Save the syrup for flavoring, it has a strong ginger flavor and can be used to flavor drinks-- it is so yummy! I also save the sugar that I tossed it in to use in recipes.
Crystallized ginger is a safe and effective treatment for morning and motion sickness; keep slices in a small jar in your handbag or desk to chew on when feeling queasy. Also try: Morenatural health remedies from James Wong's "Grow Your Own Drugs"

- Place ginger in a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add enough water to cover by 1 inch. Partially cover saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat; boil until ginger is almost cooked through but still slightly al dente, about 1 hour. Drain.
- Weigh cooked ginger and return it to saucepan with an equal amount of sugar. Add 2 tablespoons water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring, until ginger becomes translucent, about 20 minutes.
- Reduce heat and continue cooking, stirring, until ginger is crystallized and begins to clump in the middle of the pan.
- Meanwhile, sprinkle a large rimmed baking sheet with sugar. Pour crystallized ginger onto prepared baking sheet and roll in sugar, separating pieces. Transfer to a sterilized jar and store in a cool place for 3 to 6 months.
