For the longest time I was in hate with ginger. Being Asian, ginger is in a lot of dishes my mom and grandma would make. The worst part was accidentally eating a piece that looked like a piece of chicken. Growing up means changing palettes and now eating it doesn't physically make me sick It actually makes me feel better. A quick Google search will confirm that ginger is the ancient Chinese secret for stomach aliments.
Anyways, I stopped into Marukai to buy some lemongrass and I saw the young ginger and I had to buy it. I already have ginger but this was too interesting. I think it was that it was pink that sold me. I am a sucker for pink root vegetables, also this one looked like antlers. The taste was sweet and light, the very opposite of its older self. I did use it to make dinner and in the end it tasted like ginger.
