gingercandies

fresh ginger
sugar and spice

directions: Peel and cut ginger into candy sized pieces. Add ginger to a large pot and fill with water until covered. Bring to a boil and let cook for 10 minutes. Add sugar and let cook until the water becomes a syrup. Drain ginger syrup into a jar for future use. Roll each bit of ginger in sugar and place to dry. Don't be scared to mix-it-up! my roommate and i have rolled the candies in sugar, sugar + cayenne, and cinnamon to name a few combinations.

about the recipe: seriously the most ridiculously easy and most delicious thing to make! i use the ginger syrup with everything. ginger syrup + two shots of espresso + a little bit of coconut milk is one of my favorite coffeedrinks. none of the measurements are exact because it's very make-up-as-you-go-along. you just got to feel it out, ya'know? Note of Caution: post-sugar rolling make sure to place the ginger on something to let it dry, my house usually uses a silkscreen and frame as a drying rack because this stuff is incredibly sticky.
