I like crystallised ginger, and today I saw some good-looking root-ginger on sale @ 40p per pound. I figured all I really needed was some sugar, and I could turn a big root into tasty-sweet & spicy-lumps. This turned out to be correct.
Some claim that ginger is a remedy for nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness and general stomach upset. I don't, but I like the taste.
Step 1: Ingredients & tools
Fresh root ginger ~1.5 LB (61p)
White refined cane sugar - ~3 LB (most can be recovered)
