From the forest gardens of Develapola in Sri Lanka
Ginger is a root crop and ours is grown ecologically in the Develapola group in the Gampaha district of Sri Lanka.
Ginger has a warm, spicy and sweet aroma that, both fresh and dried, plays a vital role in Asian cuisine. At home, powdered ginger is often used in pastries, soups, marinades and smoothies. Chopped ginger is suitable for mixing with other spices and can be used as an alternative to fresh ginger.
Five Spice is one of the most popular and classic spices in Asian cuisine and incorporates five flavours of the Chinese cuisine – sweet, sour, bitter, spicy and salty. The light anise-like taste is a hit with both children and adults.
Five-Spice is immensely suited to duck, where it can be used in a marinade brushed on the duck, and as a rub on the duck breast. Five Spice can also be used in cakes, especially for the classic Christmas charm that the spice lends to chocolates and other confectionery.
