Ginger Root is a wild plant which can be used as a perishable food item or used in cooking as 'spice'.
Ginger Root can be used as spice in cooking recipes, or eaten directly. Despite the pickling of vegetables being an in-game mechanic, Ginger Root cannot be crafted into Ginger Pickled.
Ginger Root can be eaten, providing the player with some positive effects, however these will become more negative the longer it's left to perish.
|Dangerous, will cause sickness.|
Ginger Root will spawn naturally in stacks of 1-3 randomly throughout the world over time.
