Description:Galangal is a common herb/spice/vegetable grown in much of warm Asia to flavor cooking. Very common in Thai style cooking. The plant itself is ginger like in growth, though much taller and bushier. Plants can be harvested as soon as 1 year after planting.
All Galngal products are sourced from a single farm in Southern Taiwan growing things organically and sustainably. Galangal plants are part of an experiemntal sustainability project in which new farm systems are aimed at reducing water in irrigation, and toally cutting out concentrated fertilizers and sprays.
Our galangal stock originated from Thailand and Malaysia and Borneo. After being cultivated in larger quantity on the farm, they are trimmed in the field (leaves and dirt etc removed) and brought to the packing facility where they are washed, cut, dried, powdered and bagged. As with all our dried products, dried galangal is dried in commercial food driers out of the sun at contrlled temperatures to reduce the deterioration of the material.
