Galangal vs. ginger

sandiasingh | Oct 26, 2013 08:30 AM

I just taste tested grated galangal (which I have used for years) vs. grated ginger. The galangal, which is called an "upscale version of ginger," is very hot/spicy--tip of the tongue spicy. The ginger is still hot but milder. Is that your experience, or has the galangal been in the freezer too long?
