Ground Ginger is the dried powdered form of the ginger plant stem. As one of the first spices exported from the Orient, ginger spread all over the world as early as the first century. Its powdered from became popular due to its ability to withstand higher cooking temperatures without comprimising the flavour. Tangier & more concentrated than its fresh counterpart, Dried Ginger is essential for Asian cuisine & perfect for flavouring curries, roast pork, Asian greens & cold or warm beverages. It can also add a zing to baked goods, such as gingerbread or ginger snaps.
