Review: Ginger People Ginger Spread and Recipe Ideas

Published 22:55 pm

I never quite understood the joy of ginger until I tried Ginger People's Ginger Spread. It was Christmas time, and I was at my mom's house. This funny-shaped and very classy-looking jar of golden goop was sitting next to the toaster, and curious, I asked my mom why it was there. Very matter-of-factly, she told me that she used it on toast. I had never even considered eating toast with ginger, but as a general fan of my mom's cooking, I asked her to make me a piece. She did, and the next day, I made her take me to the store to get a jar of my own. We bought the Ginger Spread at Whole Foods, although most natural or health food stores carry the line of Ginger People products.

The product concept is simple. It is ginger and sugar, in a spreadable form. It is about the thickness of your average fruit jelly, although less jelly-like in texture. It spreads easily at room temperature or refrigerated, giving you the option of putting anywhere between a thin dusting and heavy coat on whatever you are spreading it on.

Since purchasing a jar of my own, I have found a variety of uses for it beyond simply putting it on toast. My theory is that you can add ginger to pretty much anything, and it will make it better. Below are some of the uses I have found for the Ginger Spread, although it is certainly not limited to these particular uses.

Ginger Toast

Simple and full of joy, this is what I most commonly use the Ginger Spread for. Take a piece of your favorite bread (I've used everything from white to whole wheat with clumps of healthy stuff to sourdough to croissants), toast it, and spread your desired amount of Ginger Spread on it. The result is an explosion of flavor that is much healthier and tastier than butter.

Ginger Snack Crackers

Snacking on some plain Wheat Thins? Spruce them up with a hint of ginger! The same goes for Ritz Crackers, or tortilla chips, or whatever other neutral-tasting things you can find to put it on.

Peanut Butter-Ginger Sandwich

As a twist on the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, just use your favorite bread and peanut butter, and use a healthy amount of Ginger Spread instead of jelly. For an added delight, add some Ginger Spread to a peanut butter and banana sandwich!

Ginger Stir Fry

For any sort of stir fry involving vegetables and/or meat, add a teaspoon or two of Ginger Spread. It introduces a lot of flavor, and is a great complement to the traditional soy sauce seasoning.

Breakfast Sandwich with a Ginger Kick

This is probably my favorite thing to do with the Ginger Spread. Fry an egg, melt some cheddar cheese onto it, add a slice of ham or a sausage patty or a couple strips of bacon. Stack that all up on a couple pieces of bread (or croissant, bagel, etc.), one with Ginger Spread on it, and the other with a thin layer of cream cheese. It's an absolutely delicious combination of so many flavors!
