Staff Tips & Tricks

The transition from fresh ginger to ground ginger brings about a transformation in flavor intensity. Ground ginger is approximately six times as potent, by volume, as its fresh counterpart. Thus, a little goes a long way, and it's best to use ground ginger sparingly to ensure the perfect balance of taste in your dishes.
Beyond its culinary merits, ginger holds a remarkable place in folk traditions as a powerful medicinal herb. It has been treasured for its ability to alleviate nausea and digestive disorders, providing comfort during moments of discomfort. Additionally, ginger has been utilized for its analgesic properties, offering relief from pain, and for combating the symptoms of colds.
