Those of you who have read previous posts, specifically this one, will know that I have been experimenting with growing ginger in cold ol’ Hobart. I have been watching the plant slowly die off, which I am led to believe occurs with ginger in cooler climates, marking harvest time. This of course has prompted me to eagerly get some content for a new blog post.
Pictured are the results of my 1st ginger harvest, not huge, but, still kind of exciting for a 1st try.
And… you are asking yourself, how does freshly harvested Hobart ginger taste??
I am not sure if I have harvested too late or too early, or, if ginger needs to be dried and cured in order to bring out its flavour and sweetness? I will do some googling, but, would welcome your input. The brief search I did on it uncovered another grower who experienced the same issue. I will update you when I find out more, and let you know if my ginger ever does sweeten up.
