Yield: 2 pint jars crystallized ginger, 8 oz. ginger sugar, 1 quart ginger syrup

Using the rounded edge of spoon, scrape off skin from ginger. Slice ginger into 1/8 inch sections.
Place ginger in a well-seasoned skillet with 4 cups water. Broil to a boil and cook until tender, about 30 to 35 minutes. Pour into a colander over a container. Reserve liquid.
