Ginger belongs to the Zingiberaceae family and comes from the Karnataka Kerla state in India.
It is used in many of the same dishes as Turmeric and these sun-dried roots complement each other extremely well. They are said to have remarkable health benefits, possibly even more so when consumed together with grated pepper.
For some extra zing in your cooking, grate the dried roots into a classic curry, a delicious Caribbean sweet potato soup or your breakfast chia seed pudding. Or why not grate and stir into a fresh cocktail or your favourite smoothie? It also works very well on top of your morning latte, tea or super-healthy detox shot, too.
