Ginger Powder Organic Spice

View larger Image

Steenbergs organic ginger spice has a strong, clean flavour with lemony overtones, making it perfect for all baking recipes - especially gingersnaps, gingerbread, molasses cookies, coffee cakes, fruit breads, pies and muffins. Organic ginger (dried) also adds a warming bite to seafood, picks up the flavour of bland foods and cuts the fattiness of rich meats.  I like fresh ginger chopped and boiled with some sugar and water for a cleansing and tasty hot pick-me-up in the afternoon.


Ginger comes from rhizome of a tropical, perennial plant - Zingiber officinale.  Ginger grows erect, leafy shoots that get to over 1 metre in height (4ft) and 5mm in diameter, which die down annually.  Separate flower stems grow directly from the rhizome, which end in white or yellow blossom with a purple-speckled lip.  Although ginger flowers are used in Asian cookery, it is the rhizome - usually called the ginger root - that is the source of the spice.  The ginger rhizome grows underground in tuberous joints, creating something that looks like a knuckled hand with swollen, plump fingers.  Ginger rhizomes are encircled in scales, covered in a beige coloured skin that covers the pale tan to white fibrous flesh.  The aroma and flavour of ginger is sweet and pungent with a lemony freshness, while the flavour is similarly sweet, spicy and warm depending on when harvested.  Early harvested ginger is sweeter and more tender and so used for crystallised ginger, while the later harvested ginger is pungent and fibrous and so is used for the culinary spice.  Dried ginger is uprooted from the ground, cleaned then dried in the sun.  For more on ginger, look at Ingredientia and Wikipedia.


Ginger is a versatile spice being used either in sweet bakery for cakes and biscuits directly or in mixes like Steenbergs organic mixed spice, while it is also used in savoury foods from Indian and South East Asian curries through to sausages.  I like it in making sausages finding it adds a pleasing heat that complements the pork very well.  For some ideas on how to use ginger, try BBC recipes and Steenbergs Recipes section and type in ginger.
