What we commonly refer to as ginger is in fact the root of a flowering plant that takes the same name. Ginger originated in Southeast Asia and was one of the first spices to have been exported from Asia, being used as a culinary spice and medicine by Ancient Greeks and Romans.
In the present day, Ginger’s fiery, aromatic taste make it a distinctive addition to many cuisines around the world. Young ginger roots are juicy and fleshy, with a mild taste that lends itself well to teas, candies and alcoholic drinks. Mature roots are fibrous and dry, with a stronger flavour that is commonly used as seasoning for Indian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese dishes.
