Dig roots at the end of the growing season when they will shrink least; then wash thoroughly and scrape. Slice thin, or cut in match-stick pieces. Boil in water for an hour, change water and boil another hour. Drain and cook until transparent in a syrup made with 8 cups sugar and 1/2 cup water. Lay on waxed paper to dry. Store in tin or glass between layers of waxed paper.

Lovage root may be candied in the same manner.
