How to make your very own candied ginger, it's very easy and once made it can be stored in an air tight container for up to a month. I use this in baking to give an extra bit of flavor and spice.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 150g fresh ginger
  • tiny pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Peel and slice ginger finely
  2. Place in a pan and cover with water, bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 10 minutes
  3. Drain off the water

  5. Add the ginger and pinch of salt and boil for 2 -3 minutes on a high heat
  6. Take off the heat and leave ginger to sit in the syrup for 15 minutes
  7. Drain the syrup through a sieve, you can keep this ginger syrup for making drinks with!
  8. Make sure you shake off as much excess liquid as possible from the ginger
  9. Spread 2 tbsp granulated sugar on a plate and toss the ginger pieces in the sugar
