Use for sugar from making Candied Ginger??

nancedarNovember 7, 2011

OK, the store got a delivery of very fresh fat ginger root so I simply HAD to buy 2 pounds of it and made candied / crystallized ginger. I use it in my pumpkin muffins and Alton's gingersnaps, sometimes a piece slips into my tea or my jeans pocket, and I plan on dunking some in chocolate for the holiday cookie/candy tray. Hmm, I may have to go back to the store.

Now, what do I do with all the sugar I rolled it in? I am afraid to add it 'as is' to cookies because ginger can overpower other flavors, including butter. Any advice would be so welcome, and thank you.

The obvious answer is to make ginger bread or ginger snaps. Or molasses cookies which have ginger in them.

Sugar cookies
Ice cream

Just use part regular sugar and part "ginger sugar" so it isn't overpowering. I think sugar cookies made with it would be awesome!!

I would try to make a 2-liter bottle of ginger ale with it.
