"I wonder about this, too. I see it all the time in Maangchi's and other Korean cooks' videos. Are the tips of pine nuts bitter, perhaps? I'm going to investigate... :)"

"Just made this - it's steeping in the fridge. Can't wait to drink it! I noticed the ginger slices still had plenty of flavor after straining. I don't throw anything away that I've already paid for if it still tastes good. So I removed the cinnamon, weighed the ginger and put it back in the pot. Then added an equal amount of sugar, a splash of water, and brought to boil. Then simmered for 20 minutes stirring frequently. When the liquid was almost gone and the ginger was getting translucent, I spread it out with chopsticks on a cooling rack set over a piece of foil. Now I have candied, cinnamon-spiced ginger as well as a yummy drink. I consider this a total bonus!"
