Premium Australian Ginger Slices (1 Pound Bag)
Consider this your invitation to enjoy the finest crystallized ginger in the world, in your own home. Our Australian ginger is grown near the northern coast of Australia, where the soils are fertile and the climate is extremely hot and humid—perfect growing conditions for this tropical rhizome. Although Australia produces less than 1% of the world’s ginger crop, it is universally acknowledged to be of exceptional quality, and we’re proud to offer you this rare taste of heaven at a great price. Our delicious Australian crystallized ginger comes to you gently sweetened with natural sugar, to provide the ideal balance of sweet-n-spicy to delight your palate.
Australian ginger is sweeter and less pungent than the ginger grown in other parts of the world. The roots you find in the supermarket are typically harvested at a mature stage after 12-18 months in the ground, but the ginger used to make our Australian Crystallized Ginger is taken after only 5-6 months, while it’s still quite tender. After slicing and crystallizing in a natural sugar solution, it boasts an incredibly fresh, clean taste and a soft, chewy consistency similar to gumdrops. As a result, most of its “crunch” comes from the sugar crystals.
Mild and delicious, our Australian Ginger is outstanding for eating out-of-hand as a stand-alone snack, and mixes well with other foods to provide a wonderful gingery “snap” without overpowering the other flavors. You can cook or bake with it at will, or add fresh to your favorite dishes as that special ingredient that takes your dining to new heights. Try it in fruit sauces, trail mix, creamy salad dressings, or even as a contrast candy on a cheese or bread platter at your next get-together. Low in fat, with plenty of well-documented health benefits, our Australian Crystallized Ginger makes every day special!
Nutritional InformationUsed for thousands of years in Asian Herbal Medicine, we are constantly fascinated with the many therapeutic values of this magical root:
Arthritis In one published trial, 74% of rheumatoid arthritis sufferers reported marked pain relief and 59% reported a reduction in swelling. Nausea A study from Brigham University found that ginger curbs nausea by interrupting the feedback between the stomach and the nausea center of the brain. Circulation Ginger has been shown to stimulate circulation and the warmth it imparts to the body corrects the surface chillness associated with colds. Antioxidant Ginger contains phenolic compounds that protect fat cells from being damaged by highly destructive free radicals. Digestion Ginger is a carminative (ridding the stomach and intestines of gas) and an aid in the digestion of fatty foods.

I ordered some homemade organic baby ginger from the farm in North Carolina.
Most ginger comes from China, even when it says certified organic, you really have to read all the labels and research where itâ€™s from. My understanding is China, Thailand, is loaded with lead, chemicals etc.
When the baby Ginger is back in season Iâ€™m going to buy some and make it myself. You can also freeze Ginger.
If you like very sweet, extremely mellow Ginger, this is for you.
