Crystallised Ginger

This candied delicacy of ginger root stimulates your digestion and can be added to muesli or cake mixes. You'll need two hours to make this recipe, but it will keep for weeks if stored in an airtight container.
* Peel and slice eight ounces of ginger root. In a large saucepan, heat two cups of water and the ginger, then boil for five minutes. Drain the liquid and add another two cups of water. Boil and drain, and repeat this method three more times.
* Remove the ginger from the water with tongs and add a quarter cup of sugar. Bring to a boil, add the ginger again and simmer for about an hour until the root's colour is translucent.
* Remove the ginger and leave on a clean rack to dry. Then roll it in a quarter cup of fine sugar and store away.

Candied ginger helps ease travel sickness. Put some into a small tin before a long journey.

I haven't tried it

Ginger hmmmm not sure about that one, since my grandma used to make ginger beer I have become sensitive to the smell, but I like the taste in chinese foods - although the recipe sounds great Webby - tempted to give it a go.....
I don't believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the
other person and learns from the other. I have a lot to learn from other people.
