Officinal ginger is a plant native to India, which differs from Japanese ginger, mainly used in the land of the Rising Sun.

To preserve it, this spice can be kept at room temperature for a fortnight, or in the refrigerator for several weeks. It is also possible to place it at freezer in grated form.
