  • Add ginger to sugar mixture. Boil gently, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until syrupy.

  • Strain, reserving syrup (discard ginger or make Candied Ginger). Divide among bottles. Chill up to 1 month.

Candied Ginger:

Arrange drained ginger slices on a wire rack set over a shallow baking pan. Allow to dry overnight (ginger will still be sticky). Place 1/2 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Add ginger and toss to coat. Divide among four 4-oz. jars. Refrigerate up to 1 month.
