Ginger Ginger is native to India and China. It takes its name from the Sanskrit word stringa-vera, which means “with a body like a horn”, as in antlers. Ginger has been important in Chinese medicine for many centuries, and is mentioned in the writings of Confucius.

Although often called “ginger root” it is actually a rhizome. It is available in various forms, the most common of which are Whole raw roots, fresh roots, dried roots, powdered ginger, preserved or stem ginger and pickled ginger. Ginger is almost always used fresh, minced, crushed or sliced. Fresh ginger can be stored for few days in the refrigerator. Fresh ginger is essential to Asian and oriental cookery. It is used in pickles, chutneys and curry pastes and the ground dried root is a constituent of many curry powders. Tender young ginger can be sliced and eaten as a salad. In west countries, dried ginger is mainly used in cakes and biscuits especially ginger snaps and gingerbread. Ginger is also used in puddings, jams, preserves and in some drinks like ginger beer, ginger wine and tea.
