Galangal Root (Cut & Sifted)

Galangal root, also known as Little John, Chewing John and Galingale, comes from the rhizome of a tropical plant native to Indonesia. The dried, cut root is used to flavor Żołądkowa, a popular brand of Polish vodka. Reputedly, chewing the root and then spitting on the floor of a courtroom before the judge takes the bench will ensure a legal outcome in your favor. (Of course, you might want to hire a lawyer, too.) The chopped root is used to make teas and tinctures.
Also Known As greater galangal, thai galangal, blue ginger, thai ginger, laos, lengkuas, galanga root, languas galangal, kanghu, pa de kaw, galingale, kha
