Last night I was able to cook down the Ginger until it was in a syrupy condition and I didn't want it sticking all over my dehydrator so I wrapped a pan in tin foil and spread them out on it...and put the oven on
my lowest "warm" and let it stay on until 4:30 am this morning ..what a beautiful job the oven did :o) some of them stuck, but not where I couldn't just pull them off..and tasting it ..it was soooo good :o) nice and chewy and with that ginger bite..I'm loving it. Thanks Leigh for that simple recipe.
Yesterday you saw how much I started with and after it cooks down and dries in the oven ...it's surprising how much less or bulk there is..:o) but it's well worth it.. After taking them off the baking sheet I put them into a baggie with sugar and shook it to get sugar on the sticky parts of th ginger ..then put them into this plastic container I had on hand..They are going to be a good snack food :o) ...the syrup that was left from cooking I put in a jar I had honey in..it was too thick for pancakes, so I'll use it as my sweetener when I make a cup of hot ginger which is getting to be a regular thing around here :o).
I couldn't tell the difference in the purple ginger ( I didn't even look for it :o)...If you haven't done this ..try it ..you will be pleased :o)
