Get creative with this versatile treat! Crystallized ginger, also known as candied ginger, consists of the peeled rhizome of the ginger plant that has been cooked until softened in a sugar syrup, then air dried and rolled in sugar. The characteristic zing of ginger root instantly follows the initial and familiar sweetness of sugar. The combination is a moist and chewy spicy-sweet taste or is it a sweet-spicy taste.
Enjoy candied ginger on its own or paired with other foods. Chop it into small pieces and add it to baked goods and other savory dishes like stir-fry for a kick of sweet spice. Steep crystallized ginger in hot water and in minutes enjoy an aromatic tea!
