ginger: carmelized vs candied--difference?
I've read differing reviews on-line about whether the terms are synonymous or, even if not, if the products can sub for each other. What say the CHs?
Can you buy caramelized ginger? What does it look like? Or do you mean crystallized? I'd say crystallized and candied are the same, but they are not cooked to such a high temperature that the sugar caramelizes. Caramelized sugar would seem to be integral to caramelized ginger, if its not, then someone out there is just making stuff up.
Are you thinking of crystallized ginger? That is basically the same thing as candied ginger.
Looking around the net, I see lots of recipes that include caramelized ginger, but that seems to involve making a caramel syrup with ginger in it. Some have crystallized ginger as an ingredient in the caramel sauce.
