Our organic ginger, ground from the dried ginger root, provides the robust, warm flavor and distinctive aroma that has made the spice popular for both sweet (think gingerbread and pumpkin bread) and savory (think stir-fry) dishes in cuisines around the world. Ground or powdered, it's a convenient form for baked foods, curries and chutneys and for sprinkling on applesauce and other cooked fruit and vegetable dishes. Ginger also lends its warm, spicy flavor to condiments, relishes, sauces, pickles, beverages, candies and all types of desserts. Our organic bulk ginger is kosher certified and non-irradiated.
