A very high quality, aromatic ginger with lots of flavour.
Botanical Name: (Zingiber officinale)
Description & Use: Ginger root is the rhizome of a tropical plant that is related to galangal and turmeric. Herbie’s Spices ginger powder is produced from rhizomes that have been harvested when young. Ginger gathered at this stage is less fibrous and has a sweeter taste than ginger which has been left in the ground long enough to become hot and coarse. Freeze-dried ginger powder retains the tang of freshly grated ginger and is ideal for using in uncooked dipping sauces and quickly prepared stir-fry dishes as a substitute for fresh ginger. Ginger slices are used in clear soups and marinades when the flavour is to be infused and the pieces removed before serving.
Produce of India packed in Australia.
