   * Magee said she'd probably use more.
     In pan, simmer 1/2 c. water, 1/3 c. sugar and fresh ginger for 3-4	 minutes,
  stirring occasionally.  Set aside to cool 5 minutes. (This   is called a simple
  syrup.)
     In another pan, scald milk and cream (don't boil).	Remove from heat   and
  stir in remaining sugar and the syrup.  Set aside 15 minutes to   allow flavors
  blend.
     Strain ginger solids from milk mixture. Whisk in egg yolks and   crystallized
  ginger.  Return to heat (use either a double boiler or   heat diffuser.) Heat
  gently, stirring constantly, until it becomes a   thin custard. Don't allow it
  to simmer or boil. It should coat the   back of a spoon.
   Cool mixture and freeze according to your machine’s instructions.
