How to Tell Natural Spices From Fake Spices
While ginger is technically a root, its main function is that of a spice. Real, aromatic, and useful ginger should have a smooth surface. It should be hard and unwrinkled. If the ginger is wrinkled or mushy, then it is stale. Opt for a ginger root that doesn’t have too many growths so that the pulp won’t have coarse fibers.
