Origin and history of ginger

Coming from Southeast Asia, although now grown throughout the world, ginger ( zingiber officinale ) is undoubtedly one of the roots most used both in cooking and as a natural remedy. It has been known for thousands of years, and is one of those "domesticated" plants that no longer exist in the wild.

While it is difficult to find out when it began to be used in China and India (today the world's largest producer), its use in the West is evidence of the Roman era, in its trade with India. This is then interrupted until Marco Polo reopens the spice route.

With the arrival of Europeans (led by Spaniards and Portuguese) to America, it is beginning to grow successfully in the Caribbean.

Characteristics and uses of ginger

Of ocher color and with a characteristic aroma, its flavor is slightly citric and with a very particular pungent touch. It can be used both dried and fresh, and both ground or powdered as whole or in pieces. And of course it is an essential ingredient in curries and other masalas.

In the kitchen

Its uses are as diverse as we can imagine: in the kitchen it is used both in salads and sauces, and all kinds of savory dishes. In baking, especially in the Anglo-Saxon world, it is at least as important as Ceylon cinnamon. Also its freshness (and its amount of water, if used fresh) encourages shakes and various creams.

And of course as a natural remedy, either infusion -mixed with honey or other herbs-, plasters, throat candies, etc.
