History: With a long and storied history, Ginger is one of the most widely-known, and highly regarded plants in the world. Because it is not found in the wild, the exact origin of Ginger is uncertain, although its use in cooking and medicine likely predates historical records. It is mentioned in the Mahabharata, the epic Hindu work written around 4,000 BCE, and was revered in both Chinese herbal and Ayurvedic medicine. Confucius himself once wrote that he never ate a meal without Ginger. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Ginger nearly vanished from Europe; its presence in the West was revived after Marco Polos visit to the Far East. It quickly became a very coveted -- and expensive -- ingredient and medicinal herb. Most Ginger is now grown in Jamaica, followed by India and China.
