Enjoyed in cuisines the world over for its warm, spicy-sweet aroma and flavor, ginger complements both sweet (think gingerbread) and savory (think stir-fry) dishes.
It's available in whole root, cut and sifted, powdered, and crystallized, so you can choose the perfect form for your perfect dish.
Crystallized ginger--the candied rhizome of the ginger plant--is sometimes eaten as candy. It has a spicy-sweet, hot flavor. Chop it and use as a condiment with curry, or mince and stir into chutney, fruit desserts, or cream cheese. Or mix with soy sauce for eggrolls or vegetables.
