Dry the ginger:

  • Preheat your oven to 200°F (93°C).
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Using tongs or a slotted spoon, remove the ginger slices from the syrup and arrange them in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Optional: If you want sweeter chips, sprinkle the ginger slices with a little sugar before drying them.

Bake the ginger:

  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven.
  • Bake the ginger slices for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until they are dry and slightly crisp. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
