Crystallized ginger adds sparkle and spicy sweet flavor to many dishes, but it can be pricey. The good news is that it’s surprisingly simple to make.
Add some honey to the reserved cooking liquid and sip as you would hot tea, or enjoy chilled as a refreshing tonic.

This recipe is simple to follow and produces a very impressive batch of candied ginger! I made a larger batch than the recipe calls for and just adjusted my ingredients up a little. This is only the 2nd time I have made candied ginger and the first recipe I used (from another website) didn't turn out well at all. This recipe is perfect. It basically leaves you with ready to eat ginger. Other recipes call for leaving the candied ginger out to dry all night. With this recipe, once the ginger is done cooking, all you need do is lay it out on a cooling rack to cool and that doesn't take long at all. I definitely will use this recipe as my go-to for candied ginger. :-)
