Crystallized ginger is ginger root that has been slowly cooked in sugar syrup and rolled in coarse sugar to preserve its sweet, spicy taste. It is normally used for baking and candy-making, for example as a topping for sweet breads, or diced for gingersnaps; but also for teriyaki and marinades, since the peppery bite of ginger and the sweetness of sugar go great in sweet and savory dishes. If you enjoy the flavor of ginger, you can also snack on it as is, or dip them in chocolate for some original homemade candy. Ginger also has a long tradition of being very effective in herbal medicine, alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress and arthritis, so it is nice to have on hand in case you suffer from motion sickness.
