Myoga Ginger

The myoga ginger plant is native to Japan and its unmistakable, sharp taste is found in a wide range of Japanese dishes, particularly in the summer season. Both its shoots and flower buds are edible and are commonly finely sliced and added to season miso soup and sunomono (vinegared dishes). It is also used to add flavour to the refreshing summer dish, somen (chilled noodles). Myoga stimulates the appetite, which makes it ideal for use in starters.
