Know Your Ginger and Garlic
Do you like ginger? What about garlic? Me too, but have you ever asked yourself, “I wish I knew more about them?” Well you’re in luck. Vegan Grandma drops a little history on us:
Ginger is popular in the Caribbean Islands, where it grows wild. Jamaican ginger is prized for its strong flavor. Jamaica provides most of the world's supply, followed by India, Africa and China…
…The Chinese were using ginger as long ago as the 6th century BC. Ginger was used by the ancient Romans, but almost disappeared in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire. Marco Polo's brought ginger back from the Far East, and it again became popular in Europe, becoming a much-coveted expensive spice.
