You can buy crystallized ginger at your grocery store, I bought mine at Stop N' Shop it was in the produce section in the nut section. If you don't want to crack all the hazelnuts which I found really hard to shell and get the skins off, again you can buy hazelnuts at Stop N' Shop already chopped in the baking section you'll just have to pay a bit more. I really like the recipe, and plan on making it for Christmas gifts for my aunts.
