Homemade Crystallized Ginger AKA Candied ginger with minimal ingredients is a must have in the closet due to its medicinal benefits. The sugary coating helps your kids eat them without much fuss. The medicinal benefits of ginger are so powerful, even a slightly crystallized sugary coating can’t negate its potency completely.This crystallized ginger recipe accents both the sweet and spicy notes of ginger while also softening its texture into a chewy treat
The list of benefits of ginger is huge, it relieves indigestion, nausea, colic, gas, heartburn, morning sickness, and motion sickness. In addition, ginger seems to protect against ulcers, is helpful against internal parasites, and may even ease acid reflux. Tried and tested remedy for coughs is ginger with honey. Ginger compresses relieve sore muscles, stomach cramps, and swollen glands. This is great stuff!!
When I was pregnant with R3 my younger one, I was horribly nauseous for about 6 to 8 hours a day. Whoever calls it ‘morning sickness’ got it totally wrong for me :P. I was sick from morning until lunch time for almost my 1st trimester . Since ginger is such a great anti nausea treatment I started taking it every way I could do it. ;)
Honestly, this Crystallized ginger has an amazing flavor!! It has the perfect combination of heat and sweet with a strong ginger taste. Once you ‘ve made the crystallized ginger dont throw the sweet ginger syrup. Add it while baking cake or cookies or even making chai
Eat like candy whenever you get the craving for a bit of ginger. Or, whenever you get a bit of an upset stomach! It is a great anti nausea and anti gas therapy.
This ginger candy would make a great homemade Christmas gift. Or you could keep it for yourself and have an immune boosting ally this holiday season. Enjoy!
