Candied ginger

I once bought candied ginger in a supermarket here in Croatia and fell in love with it. Yes, I have a tendency of falling in love with certain food. Since it’s not always available in Croatian stores, I decided to make a homemade version. It’s much cheaper, and really easy. Ginger has a lot of health benefits and candied ginger is great for fighting viruses or for stomach pain. Enjoy!

Candied ginger
Recipe Type: Dessert
  • 8.8 oz (250 g) fresh ginger root
  • 14 oz (400 g) sugar
  • 2 cups (500 ml) water
  • pinch of salt
  • sugar
  1. Peel ginger root, cut in thin slices and cook, together with a pinch of salt. Drain it and cook again. This way you're reducing its heat. Combine drained slices with 2 cups water and sugar and cook on low heat until the liquid reduces and transform into a syrup. Drain and roll slices into sugar. Arrange on parchment paper and let dry.

  1. Hello Haley, glad you like the recipe!
    I suggest you cook it for 10 minutes the first time, than 15 the second time. Later on, just cook it with sugar until the liquid and sugar transform into a syrup.
