Every baker knows ground ginger is a staple in the pantry. It is frequently used in combination with other ingredients with strong flavors like molasses and cinnamon. It can also be used in savory dishes as well! Use it to season couscous, tangines and slow-cooked meat dishes. Use it in Asian dishes along with onion and garlic to flavor meats and vegetables. Use it in curries, snacks, stir fry and desserts. Use it in smoothies and teas or even coffee! When making savory dishes it is best to add ground ginger when the dish is almost finished cooking as it is easy to overcook which causes the flavor to quickly dissipate. Ginger pairs nicely with carrots, pumpkin, winter squashes and sweet potatoes. Ginger also blends exceptionally well with fruits such as bananas, pears, pineapples and oranges. Ginger does very well when used in combination with cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, dried fruits, honey, nutmeg, nuts, preserved lemons, paprika, pepper and saffron.
