 1 pound fresh gingerroot

 Peel gingerroots and cut into bite-size pieces.  Soak peeled ginger in cold
 water to cover for 1 hour.  Drain and cover with fresh cold water.  Bring
 to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.  Drain, cover with fresh cold water, and
 boil again for 5 minutes or until tender.  Drain and reserve.  Combine sugar

 gingerroot and cream of tartar.  Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. 
 Place in sterilized jars, seal, and store in a cool place. (I water bathed
 for probably 10-15 minutes.)   Makes three 6-oz. jars.
