Ginger - the root of excitement

The rhizome of an Asiatic plant, 'Zingiber Officinale', ginger derives its name form the Sanskrit word Srngavera - meaning, 'horn-shaped'. Known and used since ancient times in India and China, this tuber with many knobby protuberances called 'fingers' and a piquantly delicious taste is today found in many kitchens all over the world. Acknowledged as a digestive aid and a mild stimulant, ginger is reputed to have powerful aphrodisiacal properties as well.

At present, ginger is cultivated in practically all the tropical countries of the world. In India, the finest quality ginger is grown primarily in Mananthawadi and Sulthan Bathery ranges in Kerala and also in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Fine ground ginger - a boom to the modern kitchen - Natural wet ginger dries up very fast and cannot be stored beyond a certain time.
