 Candied Ginger
 2 cups peeled ginger, cut into 1/4" diagonal slices
 4 cups water
 1 cup sugar
 Extra sugar for coating
 Place ginger slices into a saucepan.  Cover with cold water, add a pinch of
 salt, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.  Then drain
 the ginger, rinse under cold water and drain again.  Repeat this process 3
 more times, each time using cold water and another pinch of salt.  Return
 ginger to saucepan, and add 4 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar.  Bring to a
 boil.  Lower heat and simmer until a thick syrup coats the ginger (1 1/4
 hrs).  Sprinkle a 1/4 inch layer of sugar in a small baking dish.  Using a
 fork, transfer ginger slices to sugar, turning to coat them well.  Cool
 coated slices on a wire rack for at least an hour.  Store airtight (will
 keep for several months).
