Young Ginger

Thai: ??????? (khing onn)

Young GingerYoung ginger is picked earlier than regular ginger and has a more subtle flavor. The skin is very light colored and thin, and can be left on for cooking. Be careful not to confuse this with galangal, as they look somewhat similar. The flavor is not the same! If you’re unsure, ask the vendor.

Storage: Store in the refrigerator. Ginger keeps well for a long time.
