This recipe is easy to make and especially useful in winter…so my friends from the North Hemisphere, this is for you right now !
You will need
1 cup fresh root ginger peeled and sliced
juice and grated rind of 1 lemon
3 cups sugar
Blend the above ingredients to a smooth paste without using water. Place the paste in a thick bottom pan on low to medium heat with constant stirring. When the sugar bubbles and starts to crystallize at the sides of the pan, remove from heat and keep stirring till slightly viscous. Pour onto a greased plate and allow to cool. Cut the candy into small bite sized squares. Stores well in an air tight container.
P.S I use these squares to sweeten my cup of tea at times !
