Crystallised ginger, made by soaking young freshly sliced rhizomes in a sugar solution, is a delicious sweet treat to enjoy at any time of the day, try as an original nibble with drinks. A little too spicy for young children, it will delight the palate of anyone who enjoys strong flavours. With its antibacterial and antiseptic qualities it’s a tasty way to keep healthy during the winter. Experiment by adding it to cakes and pastries as you would any other crystallised fruit, or to a fruit salad for a more exotic touch.
Whole rhizomes to slice as and when you need them.
Ingredients: ginger, sugar, E221.
