Ginger, Peruvian, Ground, Organic
Ginger is native to Southeast Asia and is now also cultivated in Africa, Australia and Jamaica. Ginger was introduced to Europe and the Middle East from the Orient in a dried form, which explains why many dishes call for dried ginger rather than fresh. Ginger is a rhizome (root) and grows underground as a thick, tuberous stem bearing both roots and shoots.
At the school of medicine in Salermo, Italy doctors decided that everyone should eat ginger regularly in order to love and be loved like they were young!
We grind ginger weekly in small batches to ensure freshness. Ginger has a light, peppery, lemon aroma and a hot, spicy, sweet flavor. Ginger is a natural in baked goods but don’t forget it when cooking savory foods such as sauces, vegetables, veal, venison or pork.
