Crystallize your Own Ginger

2 cups of 1/4 inch thick slices of peeled or scraped gingerroot


1-1/2 cups sugar

1/2 lemon, sliced

1 cup light corn syrup

1st day:

Cover the ginger with water in a saucepan and bring slowly to a boil.

Cover and simmer gently until tender, about 20 minutes.

Add 1/2 cup sugar, stir well, and return to a boil

Remove from the heat.

Let stand, covered, at room temperature overnight

2nd day:

Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

Add the sliced lemon and the corn syrup.

Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes more.

Stirring occasionally

Remove from the heat, cover, and

let stand overnight.

3rd day:

bring to a boil, stirring often. Stir in 1/2 cup of sugar, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer gently for 30 minutes.

Stir in the rest of the sugar and bring to a boil.

Remove from the heat and let stand overnight.

4th day:

Bring to a boil. When the syrup drops heavily from the side of the spoon and the ginger is translucent, remove from heat and drain.

Save syrup, it makes a delicious sauce.

When its well dried, roll the ginger in granulated sugar and

store in tightly covered glass jars.
