What’s the Difference between Sweet Ginger and Dry Ginger?
If you have ever bought ginger before, you may have noticed that there are two different types of ginger. You can choose to buy it as a fresh or dried product. The first difference is in how sweet the spice is. Dried ginger is much less sweet compared to fresh ginger. A second difference is how many pieces of the spice you get per bag: 20-25 cm for dried ginger, while fresh ginger has more pieces than that (up to around 50). So if you want that extra-sweet taste, then you need to choose a fresh product instead of a dry one!

Sweet Ginger FAQ
How to make ginger chews?
You can make ginger chews with just sugar, water, and molasses or you can use honey. The sugar and molasses can be mixed together to make the dough while you bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. The honey has to be heated up so it liquefies before cooking. The dough is shaped into little balls and then rolled in unsweetened cocoa powder before being dipped in melted chocolate to ensure they are coated well.
How to enjoy ginger candy with honey?

You will need to keep stirring and may need to increase the heat slightly so that when it cools and sets, it creates brittle cracks all over the surface. If you don’t have a candy thermometer or are unsure, pour your heated mixture onto a metal tray lined with parchment paper and immediately start breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon.
