Important Information About

First Harvest Ginger Experience

We recommend enjoying your First Harvest Ginger fresh, as its fresh state is what really sets this ginger apart from what you are used to from your grocery store’s ginger. Your ginger will arrive ripe and ready to consume. First harvest ginger is best kept loose in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator to preserve the specific fresh quality of First Harvest Ginger for a week to ten days. If not consumed by that time, you can freeze in an airtight bag or dry ginger on your countertop or in a cool, dry place. Based on the humidity and temperature of your home drying times will vary, we recommend consuming in the next few weeks while drying. See How to Store for more instructions.

Remove peel or leave intact based on your personal preference. To peel, use a spoon’s edge or paring knife to scrape the skin off. Fresh ginger can be utilized in numerous ways: added to stir fries, curries, salads, marinades, or to your favorite homemade sauce. You can also infuse hot water or a neutral spirit to impart its delicate flavor. The Kaua’i Ginger Lemon Syrup is a spicy addition to a craft cocktail or a refreshing seltzer. Chef Gida’s Kaua’i Ginger Mac Nut Chili Crunch is spicy and crunchy; a good topping for eggs, rice bowls, pizza, or really anything! 

Fresh Ginger - Leave the peel intact to store in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. After a week you can either freeze or leave out on your countertop to dry. While your ginger is likely to dry just fine on your counter, drying ginger at home leaves it susceptible to any mold spores and humidity that are present. There is therefore some risk for mold or rot. If you'd like to avoid this risk, we also recommend freezing your ginger. To freeze ginger, slice or mince to lay on a parchment-lined tray. Freeze until solid and place in a plastic freezer bag or airtight container to be stored for about six months.

About The Harvest

Chef Gida is making this experience with Hawaiian Yellow Ginger from Kolo Kai Organic Farm, one of the only certified organic ginger and turmeric farms in Hawaii, pictured above with Chef Gida. The name ‘First Harvest’ refers to this ginger being from the season’s first mature ginger harvest. As ginger stays in the ground and continues to mature it will decline in sugar and liquid content and will increase in starchiness. This ginger is fresher than what you can find at the store, and has a more fibrous texture and spicy taste than white ginger.

Gida is pairing this locally-sourced harvest with Kaua’i Macadamia Nuts in her Kaua’i Ginger Mac Nut Chili Crunch, a Hawaiian twist on the traditional Chinese condiment. Also included in this experience is Kaua’i Vanilla Ginger Bites made with locally-grown, specialty vanilla from The Vanillery of Kaua’i. And to top it all off, she is small-batch crafting a Kaua’i Ginger Lemon Culinary Syrup to be used in cocktails and mocktails. She is also including exclusive online recipes for the FruitStand community. At Slow Island, quality and authenticity start with sourcing from local farms to create their premium food and beverage line.

Please note this experience contains tree nuts and soy. This experience is shipped directly from Slow Island Food & Beverage using FedEx two-day shipping to guarantee freshness. Information on how to use, store and recipe ideas can be found by clicking here.

Delicious!

Maybe it goes without saying, but if you like ginger, then you need to try this box! Each item is a delicious display of how ginger can shine, with something for lovers of both sweet & savory alike. You can truly taste the hand-made craftsmanship and "slow island" care put into each product, as if it came from your own local farmers' market. Yes the ginger flavors are bold, but each recipe is also perfectly well-balanced to give it depth, roundness, and versatility. My personal favorite is the Macadamia & Chili Crunch -- it is 100% addicting! You will want to put it on everything, and probably wish you had more than one jar. This type of high-quality, locally-focused farm & food experience is exactly why I am such a fan of FruitStand.com.

The unfortunate delay due to weather

Everything is wonderful with the exception of the slightly shriveled fresh ginger root. But it was only due to the Federal Express delays due to the horrible weather. Hopefully next year the weather will be more more cooperative regarding delivery.

Thanks for your patience with the storm delays, Michael. So happy that you're enjoying the ginger!

Ginger Lovers Dream

The fresh ginger is spicy and juicy adding great flavor to savory dishes. I chopped plenty along with a few cloves of garlic and sautéed in some oil. Then added a mixture of soy, lemon juice, crushed red pepper and honey. I added chicken or fish fillets to the liquid and cooked briefly until done and served on a bed of bean thread noodles and garnished with the crunchy, spicy macadamia nut sauce included in the shipment and some caviar limes for a delicious restaurant quality meal. I enjoyed the candied ginger and look forward to making cocktails with the ginger juice.

Aloha Vibes

When I opened the box, it was packaged beautifully. Each item was secure and sealed. The ginger was so fresh! I’m now officially obsessed with the Vanilla Ginger Bites and need more ASAP! The Chili Crunch is not too spicy yet has a bit of a kick and loads of flavor. I’ve had it on salads, wraps as well as by the spoonful. I haven’t tried a drink yet with the syrup but my vodka is ready to go. I plan to make candied ginger with the fresh as well as storing a bit diced in the freezer for later use.
