I used this ginger is some teriyaki that I made for jerky and it was incredible! I have also been able to taste this culinary delight in the form of fresh pickled ginger for sushi.... [more]

This is excellent Ginger and so easy to store in the freezer. Excellent for cooking but my favorite is to make tea. Then I add a splash of milk.

Wow...the taste, texture and color of their ginger is wonderful! Not to mention all the other goodies available at the farm. Have been eating and helping grow the food at the farm for around 20 years and have never been disappointed.
