Crystallized Ginger Recipe
Ginger is a home remedy for nausea and motion sickness. This is an easy recipe for crystallized ginger. You can pack some ginger pieces in an airtight sandwich bag and carry them around with you.

Prep Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 1 cup peeled, thinly sliced ginger
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Additional sugar to coat (optional)


In a covered saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the ginger pieces and sugar and cover. Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for five minutes.

Remove from heat and allow it to sit for 20 minutes.

Although you don’t need the ginger water any more, you can keep it to make ginger ale.

Heat the oven to 200 degrees F. Place the ginger slices in a glass pan. Place the pan in the oven until the slices are almost dry but still chewy. Allow it to cool.

Toss the cooled ginger in sugar to lightly coat it, if desired.

Store the crystallized ginger in an airtight container for up to two months.


If you do not want to use sugar in this recipe, boil the ginger in water without adding the sugar.

Instead of tossing the cooled ginger in sugar to lightly coat it, sprinkle stevia or another sugar substitute over the ginger pieces to taste.

This cured me of ADD, Member Jann1955

My father just passed away and I had a hard time. They had to take me off some med for a couple of days and for 2 weeks I have been sick to the stomach. I am still having a hard time with this continual nausea. I hate caffeine in any form so I sipped on Coke, Mtn. Dew and the anti-nausea meds don't do anything so I asked about something natural and bought this because I loved it growing up. My father was absolutely brilliant but was never able to hold down anything in his teen years because he was total ADD, my older brother the same and I was when I entered school. My mother loved this stuff and introduced me to it and I ate it just like candy and haven't touched it since 17 years old. I got back into eating this. Heck only 1 year of college and I married and gave up two full scholarships. We don't need any meds for ADD, just love this stuff and eat it all the time. It will cure these learning disorders instead of medicine. It will cure the body and the mind. I wish I had remembered this as I too have a son who is ADD and just graduated from High school at 20 years old.
