DEAN & DELUCA's Ginger Powder is employed for both culinary and medicinal purposes from ancient times, and still a hot item. The essence of gingersnaps and gingerbread and a spicy enhancement to shortcake. Consider a pinch in hot teas, mulled cider or chicken soup; or add ginger's sweet heat to sautéed fish or grilled chicken. Enliven poached pears with a hint of ginger in the syrup, or add an unexpected lift to chocolate cake. Indispensable for Asian and Indian cooking.
