Candied ginger is surprisingly easy to make at home and tastes phenomenal compared to the store-bought variety! We’ll walk you through everything you need to know to master making ginger candy at home!
** Up to 1/8″ slices work best for candied ginger. If you prefer your candied ginger on the chewier side don’t go paper-thin with your slices, a little thickness helps with a chewy texture.
** You can candy any amount of fresh ginger, we simply use these measurements as a guide. Just be certain to measure the amount of water needed to barely cover the ginger in the second boil and add equal parts sugar. A large batch will require a longer 2nd boil and is finished when the liquid is a syrupy consistency.
**A wide, deep pot works better than a small pot for candying ginger. A wide-bottomed pot allows better heat distribution and the ginger pieces are better spread out.
