Very good ginger (young, tender)

Ginger is great, what is to say about it? You can eat it in a million ways, including raw — just wash it with a potato brush and you don’t even need to peel it, especially if it’s young like here (mature ginger tends to be rather fibrous; young is much less so). But watch the prices: ginger is available at Wegman’s for four sixty-nine a pound, no shippiing involved. And in my local Indian store they sell young ginger for between two and four bucks a pound. One has to marvel at how these little mom-and-pop stores manage to offer a better assortment of better quality produce at a fraction of the cost of similar stuff in large stores, including online. These days when I shop, I start my tour with the local Indian, Russian, and Asian stores/markets. Only then do I go to my Superfresh/Acme/etc. — if at all. And I only buy online after making sure the price is good and stable (prices jump around a lot and can double overnight). Bottomline: this ginger here is very good, and it’s come down quite a bit lately, but at my local Indian store is still cheaper (and just as good).

Fresh Ginger Root

It IS fresh! It makes great Ginger Tea. Just peel off the skin, chop well, simmer on low boil for 15-30 minutes and you’ve got a great beverage.
We make it by the gallon and refrigerate it until needed – Then, if we want hot tea, we pour a cup, put in microwave for 3-5 minutes, and then add a little honey.
Good AND Good For You!

Better than what I find in the stores

This was the best ginger I have purchased, ever. Not so knotty that I couldn’t do much with. I usually make a lot of ginger yea. Works great.
