Ducros Ground Ginger was first produced in 1899, and for many years through the 1920s was marketed under the name 'Ducros Ginger'. There is a delicious story of how this unique product came to be. In 1890, Adrien Noel Ducros began to manufacture his delicious gingerbread in a little bakery at the corner of Sumatra Street and Washington Place in New Orleans. A successful banker, he had retired early to follow his dream of making quality French pastries. The customers simply loved his refreshing gingerbread, and although it was an expensive delicacy meant only for the well-to-do, word quickly spread. Ducros' bakery began to attract customers from all over town. This organic root is traditionally known for its spicy, hot flavor. It is commonly used in Asian cuisine.
