Baby Ginger, and Baby Turmeric!!

We order organic ginger and turmeric seed from Hawaii, and grow it in low tunnels all summer.

Baby Ginger
We call it baby ginger because, when grown in our unheated low tunnels in Minnesota, it doesn't have time to mature and so it does not have the brown skin that mature ginger has and that means there is nothing to peel before you use it!  We grow yellow ginger which is yellow and pink, with green shoots and the whole plant is edible!  The shoots are fibrous but make a wonderful tea if chopped and then steeped in hot water.  You can also use the shoots in kimchee or other fermented products, instead of or in addition to the ginger root.  The shoots are milder than the root but still give the food that ginger flavor that is so good!

Our baby gingers and turmerics: yellow ginger, bubba blue ginger, red turmeric, and Indira yellow turmeric will be available in limited quantities Mill City Farmer's Market  on August 25 and September 22, 2018.  We hope to have enough to sell at the October 20 market as well.

Here we are at Mill City Farmer's Market in "the train shed".  Our friend Bhavana is on the right and was a great salesperson for us in 2014.  The ginger is to her right.

Our ginger was like a flag sticking out of shopping bags all over the market.

You can use baby ginger just like you use regular fresh ginger, you just don't have to peel it. 

In order to use our ginger year-round we recommend buying a pound or two of our ginger in the summer when it is fresh and then washing it carefully and freezing it.  Then all winter when you need some you can just pull it out of the freezer, cut off a chunk, thaw it a few seconds in the microwave, and chop or slice like you usually would.
