Recipes: Crystallized Ginger

Crystallized Ginger
Makes about one cup
Prep Time: 20 min
Dehydration Time: 4 hr.

Half of a ginger root, peeled and chopped
3 cups water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat your Weston Dehydrator. Bring water to a boil and stir in sugar until dissolved. Add in chopped ginger (for a How To on chopping ginger root, visit the Cooking With Weston Recipe Book) and simmer for ten minutes. Remove from heat and let sit another ten minutes.

Strain the ginger and dab with a cloth to remove excess moisture. Place on a netting roll in the Weston Dehydrator and dehydrate for four hours, or until ginger is dry but still chewy. For help on using a dehydrator, visit the Cooking With Weston Recipe Book. Toss in 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to coat. To store, use a Weston Vacuum Sealer.
