Ginger Organic, 0.454 kg pack is smaller than regular ginger. The skin ranges in color from light to dark tan, depending on the variety, and is semi-rough with occasional callouses and rings ridged along the surface. The flesh is firm, fibrous, and ranges in color from yellow to brown. The rhizome is also highly fragrant with a warm, woody scent. When fresh, Ginger is juicy and crunchy with a pungent, spicy, and slightly sweet taste.
Ginger can be utilized in both raw and cooked applications and is most often used as a spice or herb in fresh, dried, ground, pickled, or powdered form. When raw, the rhizome can be minced and added to smoothies, shredded and mixed into salads, noodle dishes, or tofu dishes, and blended into dressings and marinades. The rhizome can also be grated and frozen.
It's best to store ginger in the refrigerator intact, with the peel still on. You can store cut ginger in the refrigerator, but it won't keep as long. To maximize the storage time, place your gingers in a freezer bag; press out most of the air and place it in the crisper drawer in your refrigerator.
