Reed’s Crystallized Ginger is the only one found that is sweetened with raw cane instead of white sugar. This tender Crystallized Ginger is custom-made in the South Pacific Islands. The process is an ancient one that hasn’t changed much through time. After harvesting baby ginger (the most tender kind), the root is diced and then steeped in large vats filled with simmering raw cane syrup. Steeping for several days, the ginger is then removed and allowed to crystallize into soft, delicious nuggets. These are treats that islanders have long enjoyed for their health and pleasure.
