That is awesome.

I love candied ginger & never thought to make it myself. I'm trying to use up a hand of ginger right now by making ginger beer, so tomorrow the rest is going to be candied now. :)

Which type of ginger you used for this recipe. In my country we have 2 types - young and old ginger. We used young ginger with pinkish and green tips mostly for pickling like in sushi. The old ginger which is more fibrous, we used mostly for cooking.

SF! I think mine was "old ginger". I would also be interested in pickling!!!
How do you make them?
