Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 pound fresh ginger
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Crystallizing ginger is a lengthy process, but having these choice sweets on hand is reward enough.

Peel 1/2 pound fresh ginger and slice 1/4 inch thick. Bring to a boil in
water to cover. Simmer, covered for 2+1/2 hours. Drain, simmer in fresh
water for another hour, or until tender. Drain.

Bring to a boil 1+1/2 cups sugar, 1+1/2 cups water, and 2 tablespoons
light corn syrup; cook for 2 minutes. Add the ginger. Remove from the heat
and let stand until cool, or overnight.

Again bring the syrup to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 to
3 hours, or until the ginger is translucent. If the syrup thickens too
quickly, thin with a little hot water.

Remove the pan from the heat and set the ginger pieces on a wire rack to
dry for a few hours. Roll them in granulated sugar and store in a glass jar.
