DEAN & DELUCA's Ginger Powder has been employed for both culinary and medicinal purposes from ancient times, and is still a hot item. It's the essence of gingersnaps, 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.
