Make a syrup with two pounds of sugar and one pint of water.  Boil till it reaches "thread". Have ready half a pound of green ginger root, which has been cut small, boiled for an hour in water to cover it, and drained. Put this in a separate pan, pour over  syrup to cover it, and simmer for an hour and a half. Remove and drain; let grow cold; dust with powdered sugar. Put it into the syrup again; let cool again; thoroughly coat with sugar, and pack, in sugar, in pots or jars.
