Finely ground from the woody ginger root, this ground ginger packs a punch in both flavor and health benefits – try it in savory recipes to create an Asian flavor profile or add it to your favorite baked goods like cookies, cakes, and muffins.
Ground ginger is a fragrant spice with a strong, pepper-like flavor that mellows out as you cook it to create a sweet, lemon-like taste with just a hint of heat. It works well in savory recipes as well as sweet and is a key component in the ever-popular ginger beer. Make your own ginger tea with a little honey to soothe a sore throat or pair it with garlic and other aromatic spices in soups, stews, and vegetable dishes. Gingerol, the primary active ingredient in this powerful spice, offers antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Ginger has a long history of use in herbal remedies for everything from nausea and morning sickness to muscle pain, high blood sugar, and indigestion.
