Ginger (Stratford) - 1/4lb (not certified, organically grown)
A local marvel! Delicious young ginger grown in Ontario. We thought it couldn't be done, but Ryan Bergman at Loco Fields found a way. Best eaten fresh, young ginger is softer and less fibrous than mature ginger. Without a tough outer hide it doesn't store well, but the taste is exquisite. Enjoy!
A case of the sniffles? In addition to its frequent use in treating nausea, ginger is also a well-known circulatory stimulant. A few slices of ginger in the bottom of a cup with a bit of lemon and honey is the beginnings of a great tea.
