Production & Design
The ginger used in this spice was grown using methods developed over five thousand years of dutiful cultivation. Ginger plants reach maturity at about nine months old. After they have flowered and produced seeds, the stalks begin to wilt. This is the cue for farmers to cut the stalks and roots from the rhizome. Once harvested, the ginger rhizome is scalded to prevent it from sprouting. Which it will, in abundance. (Ever tried to clear a patch of bamboo? Rhizomes. They just keep growing and growing and growing.)
