Candied Chopped Ginger in Syrup
A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen

fresh ginger rhizomes
sugar 
water

Scrape or pare the skin off the ginger. You can cut it into sections or buds for ease of handling. Cut in thin slices across the grain. Place slices in a food processor or blender and chop as fine as possible.  For each cup of packed, chopped ginger, add 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, turn down and simmer for about 20 minutes.  

Cool and package in jars or plastic containers with lids.  I like to keep a cup or two at a time in the refrigerator and freeze the rest in zipper freezer bags for later use.  Don't be surprised that because of the high sugar content, the mixture doesn't freeze solid.  That's okay.
