Drop small spoonfuls onto the baking tray, leave plenty of space between the mixture as it will spread out during cooking.

Good quality ginger! - Sun 21st Jul 2013

It's worth the price due to the flavour, less of it is necessary than other brands. Very spicy and if a bit too much used - quite hot. Not very hot but hot enough to give an edge to dishes.

Ground Ginger - Thu 23rd May 2013

Gorgeous, fiery flavour! You don't need as much of this ginger, as its so intense. Gives a lovely kick to loads of desserts, especially fruit ones - it cuts through the sweetness beautifully.

- Tue 23rd Oct 2012

Amazing value, stupendous flavour! I'll never run out again!!

Ginger - Fri 12th Aug 2011

Good quality, great price. Very hot, I now use half the amount in recipes than I would the ginger you buy in supermarkets. Gives a great kick to banana bread and apple pie.
