Foundation. Flavor. Food.
What happens when you take a tender young knob of sweet, spicy, ginger root, with its bracing and adventurous peppery bite and surprising lemon lift, cut it in slices, and macerate it in sugar? You get Crystallized Ginger, a munchable garnish that has no parallel, a dazzling snack that you can eat straight out of the bag. Crystallized Ginger is a sugary-hot expression of a spice that has been celebrated for more than 5,000 years, traded along the earliest spice routes and coveted by kings, and even promoted in the Talmud as a zesty and delicious means to cure whatever ailed any part of the body, from problems with eyesight to digestive issues.
Crystallized Ginger, with its addictive flavor profile, can go anywhere ginger goes. If sugar content is a concern you can rinse the sugar off and chop as you would chop a piece of ginger root; use it as the savory base for a curry and saute it in with the onions at the start of your cook time. Chop and mix with hot peppers, and fresh mint for a spicy relish, or balance the sweetness of Crystallized Ginger with vinegar for a robust chutney. It can be finely chopped and used for baking and other desserts; mix it into carrot cake batter, sprinkle it as a garnish for cupcakes, and mix it in ice cream for a spicy-cold kick.

In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
