Recipe : Korean preserved Ginger with honey

Version française

A super easy recipe for delicious homemade ginger candies…

I stole this recipe on a Belgian blog I love for its surprising and worldwide recipes : “un peu gay dans les coings” (in french only). This preserved ginger recipe apparently comes from Korea, which on top of being delicious brings a lot of sweet memories for me… have fun making it !

Ingredients :

  • 200g fresh ginger
  • 200g sugar
  • 100g honey
  • 375ml water
  • Extra sugar

Preparation :

  • Peel ginger using a tablespoon. This is an indian trick, check out this vidéo it’s in french but Apolina (the lady) shows how simple and economis this is.
  • Slice ginger.
  • In a small pan, boil 500ml water. Lower the heat from high to middle, add ginger, cover and leave it for 15 minutes.
  • Do this 3 times – The idea is to remove the hot effect of the ginger
  • Dry ginger.
  • In the same pan, boil honey, sugar and water (375 ml). Lower the heat, add ginger and leave it for 30 minutes until ginger becomes trasnparent.
  • Put the slices of ginger out of the water on a flat plate or tray using a fork or a pliers.
  • Here, you can dip ginger slices into icing sugar to avoid them to stick to each other or also dip them into normal sugar for a crusty effect. But none of these processes are mandatory.
  • Do not throw your cooking sirup, you could use it for making candies, add flavour to tea or yogurt…
