Oven-drying the leftover ginger used to make ginger syrup for chef Susan Feniger’s Canton Ginger Kick and Tamarind Ginger Cooler results in a terrific cocktail garnish. Feniger also recommends giving the candied ginger a whirl in a spice grinder, then stirring it into mashed sweet potatoes for extra zing.
  • Preheat oven to 200°F with rack in middle.
  • Set a metal rack in a 4-sided sheet pan. Arrange ginger in 1 layer on rack and dry in oven until dried but still pliable, 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Cool completely.
cooks’ note: Candied ginger keeps in an airtight container at room temperature 1 week.
