About Crystallized Ginger
Crystallized ginger is pungent with a spicy-sweet flavor and is moist and chewy. It is embraced as a natural remedy for reducing hot flashes - huge numbers of women swear by it. It helps alleviate indigestion and colds...and don't forget to take it with you on boat trips for sea sickness! (Some of us here know from experience that it's an absolutely essential part of your travel kit...)
Interestingly, ginger itself is as old as the recorded history of man. A native to southern Asia and India, it is spoken of in the Jewish Talmud, written about by Marco Polo, and even recommended by Henry VIII as a remedy against the plague.
Crystallized Ginger Health Benefits
1) Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Crystallized ginger can reduce inflammation and relieve the pain associated with it. A 2012 study published in the journal Arthritis compared the anti-inflammatory effect of ginger extract to that of common drugs used in the treatment of arthritis, such as cortisone and ibuprofen. The researchers observed that ginger extract was as effective as cortisone at relieving arthritic pain, and that ginger can treat inflammation without the negative side effects associated with the common drugs.
2) Treatment for Nausea: Ginger has long been used as a natural remedy to alleviate nausea caused by motion sickness, morning sickness, and chemotherapy. A study funded by the National Cancer Institute examined over 600 people who had experienced nausea after a chemotherapy treatment. Those patients who received ginger supplements throughout the rest of their treatments experienced a 40 percent reduction in nausea symptoms.
3) Immunity-Booster: During flu season, make sure you have crystallized ginger on-hand! Ginger contains active compounds that can relieve sinuses and protect the body against toxins and viruses. A 2008 article published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine discussed ginger’s ability to activate T-cells, a group of white blood cells that help destroy viruses and tumor cells.

“This was a new one for me. I love the flavor it almost has a warm or like a smooth pepper. They are much better than gummy bears (sp) and they are not as bad for you as gummy things. I will get a larger amount on these also. Once more the sampler made me want more of these mouth explosions.”

“REALLY tender, lovely real ginger fibrous, sweet, chewy, PERFECT bits of "how can something this sweet and tasty settle my stomach, but oooooooooooooh, it *does* deliciousness. You have another supplier of this treat online beat hands down on quality, and THEY use the name "ginger" in their product. ::grin::
Once upon a time 20 years or so ago at Pike Place Market in Seattle there was a fruit, nuts and local produce stand that sold some lady's homemade crystallized ginger. Then one day the stand changed hands and NO ONE had decent ginger, no store, no stand, no one. I've tried my had at making it, and blew a lot of money and made some gummy messes in my own kitchen. THANK YOU for bringing back my "just moved to the Pac NW soother" exactly as I remembered it. I love you for this.”
