Another day, another outstanding McCormick Gourmet Spice. Today it’s Roasted Ground Ginger and it smells as wonderful as it makes your recipes taste. I’m completely in love with Asian recipes and food, so Ginger is a seasoning I call on often. There’s something extra bold about McCormick’s Roasted Ground Ginger and your nose lets you know it long before the recipe’s even made.
Below is a recipe for you to take Roasted Ground Ginger for a test drive. Just don’t make the mistake for substituting another ground ginger. Make a special trip to the store for the real thing. If you don’t, your nose will never forgive you. Do you want that on your conscience?
