Buffalo ginger is an heirloom ginger variety from a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam. Known for its fruity and floral aroma and powerful heat, this complex & flavorful ginger powder will elevate baked goods, stews and curries, and beverages from hot drinks to cocktails.
In Vietnam, the ginger is used with chicken, soup, rice, and candy. It’s also used for medicinal purposes - to calm upset stomachs, restore appetite, and support the immune system. Mix ¼ teaspoon with water and honey for a potent ginger tea.
