John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Crystallized Ginger

John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Crystallized Ginger


Crystallized Ginger

Reg. $7.99, 9 oz.

On sale for $5.99

Our crystallized ginger is an excellent, absolutely superb, hard-to-find item with lots of health benefits.

It is harvested in Australia while very young so that it is soft, tender and meaty – it’s not stringy at all! This makes it recognized as the finest in the world as it’s masterfully dried to perfection.

Our crystallized ginger has a terrific balance of sweetness with a delightful, spicy kick, just as any good ginger does!

Besides snacking, use this for any recipe calling for ginger. For a tempting treat try dipping in melted dark chocolate.

As with fresh ginger, dried ginger has many medicinal properties:

  • Can help alleviate various causes of nausea
  • Can help aid the digestive process
  • Can help alleviate other stomach issues
  • Can help alleviate colds
  • Can help ease sea sickness, morning sickness or car sickness
  • Can help with menopausal issues
  • Can help ease headaches

John Sigona is the dried fruit & nut buyer for Sigona’s Farmers Markets in Palo Alto and Redwood City, Calif.
