Crystalized, or candied, ginger from Thailand is a sweet treat with a lingering warm spicy flavor. It has a sparkling appearance, thanks to it’s sugar crystal coating.
It is prepared using a lengthy process in which young ginger is boiled in sugar water until tender, drained, and coated in crystalized sugar. Once candied, crystalized ginger can be stored at room temperature for several months.
Ginger root candy is a sweet and spicy chewy yet tender treat delicious as a snack or as an ingredient in other dishes, both sweet and savory. It is popular in Southeast Asian and Indian, as well as South American cuisine.
Ginger candy is delicious when coated with dark chocolate, or treated like a sweet and matched with fruit, ice cream, cake batter, or cookies. Add candied ginger to your next apple pie a la mode for that added zip of flavor. Mix with fall flavors in pumpkins, apples, pears, lemons, and cranberries; or tropical summer flavors in oranges, banana, coconut, pineapple, apricot, peach, mango…you get the idea. Ginger is a versatile flavor that harmonizes with countless other foods for an added warmth and zest.
In savory dishes ginger can be combined with onion and carrot, turned into a spicy chutney, or blended with herbs like cilantro, clove, curry, nutmeg, tumeric, cinnamon, and others. It also compliments nuts like hazelnut and almond.
