Sore Throats Season: Candied Ginger

 Sticky, spicy & sweet
We actually enjoy candied ginger and particularly when sore throats (or morning sickness!) are running rampant. The former of which is going around the house this week.
We've always purchased it, but we opted to make our own this morning, thanks to Healthy Green Kitchen http://www.healthygreenkitchen.com/homemade-crystallized-ginger.html

We used turbinado sugar (3 cups fresh ginger slices to 1 & 1/2 cups sugar).

The results were not as candy-like as commercial brands, but definitely sweet and undoubtedly potent!
We even saved the remaining syrup for cough and colds!
It was really good mixed into Quinoa Rice Pudding!
