Candy Ginger

Candied ginger can be found in most grocery stores these days, however it's
easier than you'd think to make it yourself. It's made simply by boiling
peeled and sliced ginger in a sugar syrup mixture.

1 cup ginger
3 cups water
3 cups sugar
Peel the ginger and slice it into rounds about 1/8 inch thick. Bring water
and sugar to a boil in a large sauce pan. When the sugar is completely
dissolved,)you know by stirying the spoon and you don't feel clumps) add the
ginger and boil for 45 minutes, until the ginger is sweet and tender. Drain
the ginger, reserving the liquid. 

Place the ginger on a rack to dry for 30 minutes, then toss it with enough
granulated sugar to coat. Let it dry on wax paper and then store in an
airtight container. 
(you can tell they are coated by touching with clean hands, till you add the
amount you desire)
Boil the reserved liquid until it is reduced to a syrup with a consistency
somewhere between maple syrup and honey. This will intensify its flavor.
This syrup can be used for pancakes, waffles, or ice cream, and is an extra
bonus for making your own candied ginger. 

The ginger is delicious eaten as candy, and can also be used in recipes
calling for candied ginger. If you don't want to make it yourself but don't
want to spend a fortune for it, look in an Asian grocery store, where the
price will be much less than it is at the supermarket.

"They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God
because of the ignorance that is in them due to the blindness of their
hearts." Ephesians 4:18
