Appalling stuff, the vinegary taste ruins delicately spiced food, it absolutely does not cook off as is the claim for these products. Ruined a dinner. I only used it as I got it as a substitute, never again.
You will probably be disappointed . . . I was.
I regularly make curry & similar dishes and always start with a ginger & garlic base. In the absence of any real ginger in Tesco about a week ago I saw ind bought a tube of the Chop root ginger puree. The puree I felt was very runny as though it had water in it, When I put the crushed garlic cloves and the Chop garlic puree in the oil to start the base of the dish it spat everywhere. The dish I made had none of the usual kick that I like and associate with using ginger. Just tonight I used it again but trebled the amount of ginger puree - I still wasn't at all impressed - the effect was barely noticeable. I am returning it to Tesco tonight where I bought it from - not for a refund, but just to let them know how pathetic it is and to hopefully get some real ginger.
Perfect when no fresh ginger or being lazy
I use fresh ginger but every so often I run out. Always keep a tube of this puree as a substitute. It's nice and hot and also perfect for a quick meal without the bother of peeling fresh ginger. Well worth stocking in your larder.
