Ginger


GingerGinger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice. Young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste.

They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes.

They can also be steeped in boiling water to make ginger tea, to which honey is often added; sliced orange or lemon fruit may also be added.

Ginger can also be made into candy, or ginger wine which has been made commercially since 1740.

Mature ginger rhizomes are fibrous and nearly dry.

Fresh ginger can be substituted for ground ginger at a ratio of 6 to 1, although the flavours of fresh and dried ginger are somewhat different.

Powdered dry ginger root is typically used as a flavouring for recipes such as gingerbread, cookies, crackers and cakes, ginger ale, and ginger beer.

Candied ginger, or crystallized ginger, is the root cooked in sugar until soft, and is a type of confectionery.

Fresh ginger may be peeled before eating. For longer-term storage, the ginger can be placed in a plastic bag and refrigerated or frozen.
