Ginger has a culinary history dating back to the ancient Greeks. It is mentioned in ancient Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern writings, and has long been prized for its aromatic, culinary and health properties. It is one of the most versatile and exotic ingredients in world cooking. In many stirfries, curries, marinades and dressings, ginger is an essential ingredient, but it works equally as well in sweet recipes as it does in savoury. In traditional recipes the Chinese use ginger’s tenderising properties as a marinade, Europeans make ginger cakes and breads, whilst the Japanese love pickled ginger for their sushi.
Ginger is slightly sweet and peppery with a strong and spicy aroma. It is often used for motion sickness and osteoarthritis and has a long tradition of being effective in alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress. It is believed to have excellent antioxidant properties and can be taken to reduce pregnancy related nausea.
