A welcome addition to the large variety of Fruit Munchies available from Melissa’s, Crystallized Ginger (also known as Candied Ginger) is a confection that adds flavor to stir-fry dishes, sweet sauces and desserts.
A favorite of Asian markets, but also found in many supermarkets, Melissa’s Crystallized Ginger is actually a product of Thailand that is used sparingly throughout Asia (its origin).
Made from stem ginger, candied, and coated with cane sugar, Crystallized Ginger from Melissa’s is excellent dipped in dark chocolate or served with juicy Asian Pears.
Similar to the flavoring of ginger root, Crystallized Ginger is spicy-sweet and may also be used as a cooking decoration.
