Cooking candy with fresh ginger
I had some hard candy a month or so ago and it was flavored with ginger. I have a recipe for microwave hard candy and would like to try it out. I have fresh ginger and a grater. Has anyone tried this out? Do I need to mash up the gratings or will the shredded ginger do the trick as far as flavor goes? Keep in mind the gratings will be added to HOT karo/sugar.
