I cup peeled and minced fresh ginger
1 and 1/3 cups sugar plus half cup additional for later use
1. Peel the ginger and prepare it with a knife; or mince it in a food processor.
2. Bring one cup of water and the sugar to the boil, then add the minced ginger, and simmer for twenty minutes until the syrup is greatly reduced.
3. Strain the ginger from the syrup and spread it waxed paper. Reserve the syrup for basting poultry or another use.
4. When the ginger is dry, sprinkle it with additional sugar, and toss being sure all surfaces are well-coated. It is ready to be eaten, used in recipes, or stored in a glass jar in a cool dark place.
