Thread: Ginger root

  1. #1

    Default Ginger root

    Are you experiencing a shortage of ginger root in your area? Two weeks ago
    I couldn't find any in the stores, this week all I could find was tiny bits
    and pieces. Did something happen to damage the crop?

    Apparently not the supply to AZ. I bought a hand last week and there was
    plenty available. Maybe just in the UK?

    Ginger root worms ruined the latest crop. (Tongue firmly in cheek)

    Don't know. I thought you could harvest those rhizomes (or whatever
    they are) about any time. -aem

    No shortage here in New Mexico either: I picked up some this last week
    myself. From a huge pile of it at one of the local Asian
    markets...and it looked good. Big pieces, good price.

    I should've mentioned my source: routine, everyday supermarket chain.

    Nope, I was just at the store today and noted a good stock of large
    ginger roots, right next to a similarly large stock of horseradish
    roots.

    Thanks for your replies, folks. You all live around me, so here in Idaho we
    should be getting ginger as well. Unless there is a great conspiracy??

    I've run into the same situation. The last time it was at Whole Foods
    and they had just then stopped carrying ginger from China and were
    awaiting a supply from California. I hadn't been able to find ginger
    at other stores, either, that's why I was there. The exception was
    that they had gorgeous ginger at the oriental market, but it was packaged
    in a two year supply. I would have bought it if I knew what trouble I was
    going to have getting it.

    The previous time, I asked the guy for ginger, I couldn't find it. He
    showed me what they had and was apologetic ... it was small pieces,
    all old and shriveled. Not worth buying.

    I think ginger is one of those items neglected by the stores.
