Most of us know that the popular spice ginger comes from the root of the plant. Well, really it is a rhizome, and the hot and pungent flavor has more to it than just a taste sensation.
Ginger got its name from the Sanskrit word sringavera which means “root shaped like a horn.” It has been used by the Romans, the Chinese, Europeans and others for thousands of years and has been endowed with an herbal and medicinal reputation. The ginger that we use as a spice comes from zingiber officinale one of many different species of this flowering tropical plant.
