Recipes–Carrot Salad With Young Ginger

‘Young’ ginger  — the juicy, mild, plump ginger that's harvested early just before the first hard frost – is a real find.  It is spicy, high-flavor, and piquant.  A delightful switch from the gnarly roots available all year ‘round.  It is best when grated on salads – cooking will waste the unique flavor – and it is particularly good with other root vegetables like carrots. The ginger is not cheap and available for only a short time, so now’s the time.
