Spice is nice! The magic of seasoning


Ginger, originating in Asia, has a long history of use in both culinary and medicinal applications. Available in various forms, including fresh, dried and ground, pickled, and crystallized, ginger offers a complex flavor profile with notes of bitterness and citrus.

When selecting ginger, consider your culinary intentions. Ground ginger is ideal for baking, while candied or crystallized ginger serves as a delightful garnish. Fresh ginger complements seafood dishes and marinades, though it has a shorter shelf life of up to three weeks, extendable by freezing.

Ginger has been lauded for its anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea effects, making it a popular choice for alleviating tummy troubles and other health benefits, although more research is needed.

Embrace the bold flavor of ginger in recipes like Air-Fryer Miso Tofu, Carrot Ginger Dressing, and Pineapple Moscow Mule Mocktail.
