Fresh Ginger Root


Ginger is an essential ingredient used in cuisine all over the world and is also known for its medicinal purposes. The ginger root originated in China and then spread to India and other countries. The juice from ginger roots is very potent and its pungent taste adds flavor to many dishes and tea. When grounded, ginger powder is commonly used to make gingerbread and other delicious recipes.

Ginger is also used to make candy and flavoring cookies, crackers, cakes, and also carbonated drinks (Ginger Ale). In India, fresh ginger is the main spice used when making pulse and lentil curries. Other than culinary uses, ginger is also known to cure nausea and cold remedies.

Disappointed in this, my second order from NY Spice.

My first order from NY Spice was great. This second order was a real disappointment and I won't be going back. The ginger root arrived, it was not packaged at all as it was the first time. Pieces of ginger, some of which are so damp they are already spoiled and have taken on smell of spoiled food. Then the other extreme, some pieces so dry I have had to cut away a good portion of the ginger to find usable ginger. FIrst time I ordered ginger was beautiful, fresh and moist without being rotten. Certainly none of the ginger was dried out in first order. First order was packaged beautifully and professionally. FIrst order ginger shipped in plastic bags with paper towels to absorb moisture and prevent mildew, etc. If I did not know better I would have thought the second order had shipped from another company and not NY Spice. Disaster. Live and learn.
