Crystallized Ginger - Candied Ginger
Crystallized Ginger starts with fresh ginger root which has been peeled, cut up, boiled, cooked in thick simple syrup, and then allowed to dry. The result is a crackly glaze with a soft and chewy center. A sprinkle of coarse sugar gives the ginger its crystalline finish for a sweet and tangy treat.
While the health benefits of ginger are preserved, the sugar content is greatly increased so special attention must be paid to ensure that one is regulating their sugar intake.
