Did I get a bad batch?
Crystalized Ginger is better than candy!
This is the Real Deal
Perfection! Sweet and SPICY!
That said, I’ve recently ordered a bunch of Ginger products from a company called ‘The Ginger People’ (I’ve tried their ‘Ginger Chews’ which are available locally and they are very tasty). I’m hoping that their ginger products have even more of a kick because it’s the sweet ‘spiciness’ that I truly crave. But for the time being, it is safe to say that this is the BEST Crystallized Ginger I have had to date.
Darn good Ginger..
Great, true ginger flavor. Will purchase again.
Some of the best I’ve had
Uniform size pieces, no stringy un-chewable pieces thrown in to ad weight. I stored them in an airtight container and they never seemed to dry out, though they didn’t really have to long to wait till they were eaten. I”m making my second purchase now and plan to make another when I run out again.
Not too sweet. Not too hot. Consistent
I’ve come back for more.
Soft & Tasty
Not bad at all, pretty tasty in fact
Regardless, this is about all you could ask for in great ginger. This ginger is moist and tender, unlike some dry and stringy ginger that you get elsewhere. It does indeed seem to come from tender, baby ginger shoots. My wife and I just love ginger. We love crystalized ginger as a snack, or mixed in other foods, such as cookies, cranberry sauce, salad dressings, dipping sauces, truffles, all manner of ways. It is a secret ingredient. If you have never had good crystalized ginger, you have missed a real treat.
I have only had one other crystalized ginger that I can say is better, which says a lot. This is about as good as it gets.
I have purchased other gourmet items from J&M Mushrooms in the past. This ginger has always been fresh tasting, as have all of their other specialty items. They seem to prefer to have a moree limited gourmet line, that they concentrate on and have great quality at very good prices. Suits me. If you are placing an order, you might check their other items as they are one of the few distributors of Spinosi Italian Egg Noodles (great product), and they have a great price on Madagascar Vanilla Beans.
All in all this product is not up to par.
