Despite ginger being a staple ingredient to many Thai dishes, we just haven't been able to find anywhere to buy ginger powder. There's plenty of fresh ginger in the shops but no powder. We use ginger powder quite a lot in drinks, cooking and baking, so was a bit of a disappointment.
So we have made our own, turns out to be pretty straightforward.
We just thinly sliced some fresh ginger root, sun dried it (not a problem here or UK at the moment), put it in the freezer over night and ground it to a fine powder. As simple as that and we end up with really fresh ginger powder.
What we have learnt though is just how much fresh ginger you need to make a relatively small amount of ginger. Will dry more next time.
True for UK, but we are in Thailand. We see lots of stuff that you can only get in this part of the world but for some strange reason no ginger powder. I am guessing they always use fresh.
We've just made another batch of ginger powder. It is rather course compared with what we would buy in UK but it does the job when we need it rather than fresh ginger.
You don't get a lot in return for how much you start with. Started out with 800 gms but only got 64 gms of powder.
I am sure we could buy one on Lazada, Asia's equivalent of Amazon. On the other hand we have 10 hours plus of sunshine (just over 12 hours of daylight but it isn't too sunny until an hour or so after sunrise) so it isn't a problem for us at the minute as the rainy season is more or less over.
Totally Agree. I have a lot of recipes asking for ginger. I buy it from eBay Suppliers. They supply a whole range of interesting things (spices, flours, nuts etc), often in bulk packets that are generally cheaper than the Local stores.
