Candied Ginger: How to..

I've seen the product in stores and just love it. But how do you make it? I tried doing a search on this site using search tool but all I got was orange peel recipes and some other stuff.

Does anyone have a recipe? Also any other desserts made with ginger would be appreciated thanks.

I might not be 100% on tis, but I have had sucess with this in a pinch...simmer in batches, changing the water like 3 times, then for the final simmer, do it in simple syrup. Once it is translucent, cool to dry, then, toss in sugar for a candy like "dusted" candied ginger...or crystallized ginger.

I made it once but can't remember where I found it..... maybe about.com?
mine ended up really hard to cut up, probably jus cooked it too long. I'm sure I'll try again someday.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
