  1. Here is the recipe from recipesource, looks a lot like the recipe from joy of cooking.

    Note, use tender "young" ginger if you can, it is much less fibrous. Also, candied ginger is even more delicious (is this possible?) when dipped in dark chocolate.


    1. I like the recipe in Blue Ginger, Ming Tsai's first cookbook. I find that the longer you oven dry the ginger, the spicier the flavor. I also find that the heat of the ginger is retained if you use the minimum of syrup to ginger.
