Ginger powder is a great addition to homemade desserts, bakes, savory items as well as teas. However, good quality ginger powder without adulteration is the key to enjoy it's multiple benefits.

I aim to use homemade ingredients as much as possible to avoid adulteration often found in store bought items.

All you need is good quality ginger, sunlight & some time on hands!
