 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  pound         fresh ginger
                         water
    1 1/2  cups          sugar
    1 1/2  cups          water
    2      tablespoons   light corn syrup
 
 Crystallizing ginger is a lengthy process, but having these choice sweets
 on hand is reward enough. 
 
 1. Peel 1/2 pound fresh ginger and slice 1/4 inch thick. Bring to a boil in
 water to cover. Simmer, covered for 2+1/2 hours. Drain, simmer in fresh
 water for another hour, or until tender. Drain.
 
 2. Bring to a boil 1+1/2 cups sugar, 1+1/2 cups water, and 2 tablespoons
 light corn syrup; cook for 2 minutes. Add the ginger. Remove from the heat
 and let stand until cool, or overnight.
 
 3. Again bring the syrup to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 to
 3 hours, or until the ginger is translucent. If the syrup thickens too
 quickly, thin with a little hot water.
 
 4. Remove the pan from the heat and set the ginger pieces on a wire rack to
 dry for a few hours. Roll them in granulated sugar and store in a glass jar.
