Ginger Candy Recipe | Homemade Crystallised Ginger Chews | Crystallised Ginger with step-by-step photo and video recipe. Homemade candies and lollies are popular snacks, especially with urban dwellers. It is mainly due to the fact that store-bought candies or lollies are sugar concentrated and may have health disadvantages with it. One such homemade candy recipe is Ginger Candy which is known for its taste and also for its medicinal properties.

I have posted quite a few candies or lollies or sweet snacks in my blog, but this lolly snack is completely different. This is not only sweet in taste but also carries medicinal aspects. In other words, the combination of sugar and ginger juice makes an effective and healthy sweet snack that can be used as a cold and flu remedy. I personally make these, especially during the ginger season and it is thrifty to buy them. These can be easily made in large quantities and stored in air-tight containers. These can be easily served to kids, especially those who like store-bought chocolates on every occasion. In addition, these sugar candies can also be served as replacements to cough syrups with the stick attached to them. Do let me know if you like it or if you have any other variations to it.

Ginger Candy Recipe Furthermore, some more related and additional tips, suggestions, and variations to the Ginger Candy Recipe. Firstly, the sugar and ginger ratio has to be proportional for both taste and medicinal properties. Hence, I would not recommend you alter the ratio, especially the sugar quantity as it may end as just lollies. Secondly, these candies can be shaped as you wish and there is no right or wrong. I found this shape shown in the video easy to shape, but you choose any way as per your choice. Lastly, you have to be quick while shaping it as the sugar syrup turns hard quickly and it may stick to the pan. Perhaps, you may have to reheat it or microwave it so that it starts melting again.
