What happens when you take a tender young knob of sweet, spicy, ginger root, with its bracing and adventurous peppery bite and surprising lemon lift, cut it in slices, immerse it in syrup and roll it in sugar? You get Crystallized Ginger, a munchable garnish that has no parallel, a dazzling snack that you can eat straight out of the bag. Crystallized Ginger is a sugary-hot expression of a spice that has been celebrated for more than 5,000 years, traded along the earliest spice routes and coveted by kings, and even promoted in the Talmud as a zesty and delicious means to cure whatever ailed any part of the body, from problems with eyesight to digestive issues.

Ginger root, technically speaking, is a rhizome and not a root. A rhizome is a plant stem that grows horizontally, producing roots below ground and leaf and flower shoots above ground. Its knobby appearance and gnarled offshoots reminded the South Asians who first tended ginger in their gardens of a deer’s antlers, and called it singabera in their native Sanskrit. Time and cultural appropriation altered the pronunciation; there was gingiber, and gingifer, and at last, ginger. Our Crystallized Ginger is made from ginger root, cane sugar and fruit juice.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

 

Crystallized Ginger, with its addictive flavor profile, can go anywhere ginger goes. If sugar content is a concern you can rinse the sugar off and chop as you would chop a piece of ginger root; use it as the savory base for a curry and saute it in with the onions at the start of your cook time. Chop and mix with hot peppers, and fresh mint for a spicy relish, or balance the sweetness of Crystallized Ginger with vinegar for a robust chutney. It can be finely chopped and used for baking and other desserts; mix it into carrot cake batter, sprinkle it as a garnish for cupcakes, and mix it in ice cream for a spicy-cold kick.

1/2 cup of candied ginger can be substituted as 1 teaspoon of ground ginger.

India is currently the world's leading exporter of ginger. “Cochin” is the best grade of ginger available from India.

Our Ginger is cultivated in India and is the Cochin grade.

Crystallized Ginger And moist (not dried or dehydrated) . Great ginger flavor! A bit grainy, (but ginger is a grainy root except when cut wafer thin and dried). Cut some up for baking, some for snacking and put a piece or so in my coffee to give it a bit of zing!
