About Ginger

Here at Blasta Delights, I have researched the various ginger roots that are available to the market. Here in Europe, we predominantly have Chinese ginger in the supermarkets, but I have started seeing Peruvian ginger in some other supermarkets. This is probably due to the lower cost of shipping from South America than China currently at the moment.

You can get ginger that is paler in colour, nearly white than yellow and this root has lower gingerol content, the essential oil that gives the root its spiciness and properties of anti-inflammatory and antiseptic.

The organic Peruvian ginger is yellow and you can tell by one the taste, as it’ll blow your top, this is how you know there is higher gingerol in the root and also the colour is noticeable yellow.

About Me

Hello, and welcome to my new culinary discovery and creation of ginger inspired goodies. I am Áine, originally from Dublin and living here in Kerry.

Back in 2016, I was living in Canada and I was looking for a sweet treat in the supermarket. That is when I saw the crystallised ginger on the supermarket shelf calling out to me. That is when I got the idea to create this addictive ginger treat myself. Finding inspiration and creativity in items sitting on supermarket shelves became a regular occurrence for me. I gifted my new creations to friends and family and my interest in creating my ginger treats flew from there.

I learnt more about the different gingers sourced from countries such as China, Australia and Peru. I focus on using organic Peruvian ginger for its sustainable agricultural approaches as well as its unique level of spice.
