Cooking ginger in sugar:
Step 1: Prepare Ginger.
We clean the root of the skin with a knife, somewhat reminiscent of peeling potatoes. After we cut the ginger into slices. You can make slices thin, you can large, taste will not affect the taste, but keep in mind that the more slices, the longer ginger needs to be cooked.
Put chopped ginger in a pan and pour over water. All slices should be submerged, so keep an eye on the water level during cooking. The process itself takes 40-60 minutes. Cook until ginger is soft. After we remove the pan from the gas and discard the boiled ginger in a colander. While the water drains, you can start making sugar syrup
Step 2: Cook the sugar syrup.
Making sugar syrup is very simple. Pour sugar into a saucepan with water and bring to a boil.
Step 3: Cook the ginger in the syrup.
Add boiled ginger to sugar syrup and continue to cook stirring for 20-30 minutes. Ginger should absorb sugar and become transparent, and the syrup thicken. After that, you can proceed to the next cooking step.
