Organic Peruvian Ginger
The ginger that I source is farmed in harmony with the jungle surroundings of the Peruvian selva alta or high jungle, of the Junín Province. Ginger was brought to Peru back in the late 18th century from China. Peru is now the third largest exporter of ginger.
The farming techniques within this province haven changed very much in hundreds of years, as the methods are still the same just farmers are more knowledgeable the soil. The ginger plants here are intercropped, with other plants, usually coffee plants, which helps to boost biodiversity.
Raw Cane Sugar
The sugar that I source comes from South America, usually either Columbia or Argentina. The grain size can vary which also changes the properties of the sugar, as it increases the amount of molasses which is present.
