Making Crystallized Ginger

I made this back in late spring, using some fresh ginger that was becoming a bit wrinkly. I bought the ginger in a small bag from Ranch 99 at a very good price -- about $1.89 for several good-sized pieces. Bonnie asked me for the recipe and I thought this could be a good gift during the holidays -- as a hostess gift, to use in a special gingerbread loaf (crystallized pieces in the batter, then after baking, some bits on top of cream cheese icing -- yum), or as a general holiday gift for someone who enjoys baking. 

Making the candied ginger was easier than you might think. The process is like making candied orange peel. 


  1. How is you new comment format going? It seems to be working, except I'd like to be able to scroll back up to the post without clicking out of the comment screen because, occasionally, I refer back to the post when commenting. There is a link that says,"Show original post," but it only shows the first bit. Is there another way I should be doing it?

  2. Hi live and learn,
    hmmm, I'll have to look into it. What I typically do is keep 2 tabs open, one with the original post and the other with the comments page. But I'll check and see if there's some other way to access both pages easily. Thanks for bringing this up.
