it is rather long to make candied ginger, but I have tried also just dry the ginger in oven like the orange is nice, put lose it's strong perfume. if you prefer a lighter taste, you can use driedginger.peel and slice the fresh ginger. then put on a baking tray covered with baking paperand let dry in oven at 50°-75°C for 6-8 hours.
you can add green tea leaves if you like.
