Passover Ginger Candy
(Passover Ingberlech)


Purchase matzo meal (ground matzos) wherever Jewish foods are sold.



  1. In a deep saucepan, combine the 1 cup sugar and honey; stir over low heat, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Mix almonds, ground ginger and matzo meal with eggs; mix well, using a fork. Add the mixture to the syrup. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat until it reaches the soft-crack stage on a candy thermometer.
  4. Turn the mixture out onto a wet marble slab or board.
  5. Dip your hands in ice water; use the palms of your hands to flatten the mixture to a thickness of 1/2 inch.
  6. Sprinkle the mixture with the ginger-flavored sugar and let it cool slightly.
  7. With a sharp, wet knife, cut the candy into about 25 squares or diamonds.
