Candied ginger, also known as crystallized ginger, is a sweet and spicy treat made by slowly simmering ginger in sugar syrup. The ginger root is first peeled, typically with a spoon to remove a thin layer of skin. Then, it's sliced or chopped. The ginger is then simmered again in a sugar solution which can take up to an hour, concentrating the sugar syrup and infusing the ginger with sweetness. Finally, the candied ginger is drained and spread out to dry. The sugar crystallizes around the ginger slices, creating a delicious, crystallized coating.

Early Chinese texts reference ginger's ability to soothe nausea and stomach ailments, a use that continues to this day. Arab traders later brought ginger to Europe, where it became a coveted spice alongside cinnamon and nutmeg. Candied ginger was a luxury enjoyed by the wealthy, a symbol of both its rarity and its powerful flavor.
