For all the ginger lovers out there, Mariani Uncrystallized Ginger is a yummy confectionary snack with a slightly spicy kick. Moreover, winter is upon us. As the temperature outside drops, we tend to congregate indoors and stay warm. Snacking comes to focus and there are so many choices ranging from Japanese waffle cones to European cookies.
Although I love all the common and popular snacks, I am mindful of other more unique snacks at the same time. I love cooking with ginger. The unique spicy kick followed by a warm and sometimes hot feeling is quite welcome, especially in this season.

About Uncrystallized Ginger
I love using ginger roots to flavor my dishes. You can easily enhance a heart-warming chicken soup with generous slices of ginger. Sometimes, you may find yourself out of ginger or lacking the determination to wash, peel, and slice fresh ginger.
Since this uncrystallized ginger from Mariani does not have a heavy sugar coating on the outside (similar to the no-sugar-added mango snack we reviewed a few weeks ago), it can also be used for cooking. Uncrystallized ginger pieces is an easy and versatile addition to any dish! For new recipe ideas, try adding a few pieces of these dried ginger pieces to any of your dishes or to your daily smoothie juice.
Soft and chewy out of the bag, the ginger pieces are also perfect for snacking on the go. Especially for this winter.
