G is for Ginger
Ginger has many uses in the kitchen, sweet and savoury. It comes from the Zingiber Officiale plant and fresh ginger root can be substituted with the dried variety at a ratio of 6:1. Powdered dry ginger root can be typically used as a flavouring in gingerbread, cookies, cakes and ginger beer, to name but a few recipes.
Fresh ginger can be placed in a plastic bag and frozen to preserve it's shelf life.
