Ginger Candy / Crystallized Ginger

Ginger candy is a very interesting tasting sweet which has a lot of flavor and is pretty easy to make. It is a sweet-hot treat. It can also be used in many Chinese or Thai dishes that call for sweet ginger. Ginger candy and ginger drink are made together. This candy is very helpful and a tasty medicine to cure nausea, vomiting and morning sickness. We used this couple of times when we were on the cruise with rough sea and was relieved of the sea sickness in a few minutes. Ginger Candy can be stored in an airtight container for at least a month..
