Taking a break from Weaving
Make some Candied Ginger :o) I went to the Special New Market We found and got about 2 pounds of Ginger to make some Candied Ginger and also have some on hand to make Ginger Tea :o) I love that stuff with Honey..Do you know I've been having a cup every day with honey and my B/S has been terrific :o) Ladydi, I even cut down on the sody :o).
It also seems the longer you live the more you learn...I think I'll be going to a smart world and I'm being prepared now for all the new things I'm learning :o).. Did you know there was also Purple Ginger? Do a close up and see the only one I had..and have ever seen.
I got this recipe from Leigh at http://my5acredream.blogspot.com/ and today was a good day for me to get it started..I did some scraping and washing ( I didn't take a chance on whose hands had crap on them right onto the ginger )...I did a bit of scraping and cutting out spots..it's a long cooking time so I put them into my old iron pot ( there is nothing that cooks better than these old standby pots) We keep them oiled and at the ready :o)
Since it takes a while I'll have to wait until the next post about how I made out.
As you can see the pot on the right is the sugar , water with the Ginger has cooked down to a syrup. I'm draining the syrup off the ginger ..I'll put the Ginger in the oven on very low 175 degrees..to dry it..then I'll roll it in some sugar :o)
