Ginger has been grown in tropical Asia since ancient times. The ancient use of ginger as a flavoring pre-dates historical records.

Ginger's current name comes from the Middle English gingivere, but ginger dates back over 3,000 years to the Sanskrit srngaveram meaning "horn root" with reference to its appearance. In Greek it was ziggiberis, and in Latin, zinziberi.

Although it was well-known to the ancient Romans, ginger nearly disappeared in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire. Thanks to Marco Polo's trip to the Far East, ginger came back into favor in Europe, becoming not only a much-coveted spice, but also a very expensive one.

Ginger has been grown in tropical Asia since ancient times. The ancient use of ginger as a flavoring pre-dates historical records.

Ginger has a long history of use in South Asia, both in dried and fresh form. The Hindu epic Mahabharata written around the 4th century BC describes a meal where meat is stewed with ginger and other spices. It was also an important plant in the traditional Indian system of Ayurvedic medicine. 

Modern times, gourmet cooking, and an increased focus on holistic living that supports and embraces all cultures has seen an explosion in the use and appreciation of ginger. We are now combining the incredibly powerful ginger root with natural sea salt.

Combine the clean simple flavor of sea salt with fresh, juicy ginger. The ginger flavor of this SD Gourmet variety cannot be matched by powdered or synthetic flavorings.

Use on grilled veggies, Asian noodles or fish. Great for chocolatiers and pastry chefs alike. This versatile salt can be used in products labeled "All Natural."
