Known for its ability to warm people, ginger is one of the oldest and most important spices. Although it is a native of the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, China and India are the biggest producers of ginger.
Ginger has a warm aroma with a fresh woody note and sweet, rich undertones. Its flavor is hot and slightly biting. China and most other Asian countries use fresh ginger, often with garlic. Ginger has numerous uses in sweet and savory cooking. It is an essential ingredient of curry powder and other spice blends, and is found in gingerbread, biscuits, cakes, puddings, pickles, and many Asian vegetable dishes.
In crystallized ginger, the pieces of ginger are candied, dried, and rolled in sugar.
