Ginger is used as a spice and a medicinal plant all over the world. 5,000 years ago it was a luxury commodity and was traded for the same amount as a live sheep or piece of livestock! Although originally from Southeast Asia, it is grown in Africa and many other countries in the world. When blended with the Scotch Bonnet it adds a beautiful aromatic fragrance to this chilli paste.
