John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: 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
