Do You Know?

    • Fresh ginger rhizome is available in two forms: young and mature.
    • Young ginger, also called as spring ginger, is juicy, fleshy, and tender with a very mild flavor. It has a pale, thin skin that requires no peeling. It can be grated, chopped, or julienned for use. They are often pickled in vinegar or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes.
    • Mature ginger has a tough skin that must be peeled away to get to the fibrous flesh and is usually grated, chopped or ground for use.
