Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Dried galangal (aka galingale, blue ginger, Thai, ginger, Siamese ginger) has a stronger, more peppery & sweeter flavor than fresh galangal – almost like a cross between cinnamon and ginger. It is usually simmered or steeped in liquids (soups, stews, braised dishes, etc) to infuse them with flavor, then removed & discarded before the food is served.

This is the dried form of the larger, milder greater galangal variety (alpinia galangal).

STORAGE

Storage:

Store dried galangal in an air-tight container.

Shelf Life:

Dried galangal will retain its flavor for at least a year, likely longer.

RECIPES & TIPS

Whole galangal can be simmered or steeped in sauces, stews, soups, syrups, etc to infuse them with flavor. Because its texture will remain unpleasantly woody, it should be removed & discarded (as you would a bay leaf) before serving the finished dish.

Pair galangal with ingredients like cumin, cardamom, coriander, Thai chilies, seafood, fenugreek, turmeric, beef, lime juice, kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce, lemongrass, coconut or coconut milk.
