Disclaimer: I purchase this locally so my review will focus on the product and not address factors like price and delivery.
The ginger slices are potent and stand out in any recipe. Eaten alone they have the same intense flavor as fresh ginger. And even though they are packed in brine there are not especially salty. In fact, the only ingredients are ginger, water salt and citric acid. A serving size is listed as twelve pieces, although that seems on the high side. Even so, the sodium is only 70mg, which is nominal. Calories per serving are so low that they are listed as zero.
Slices can be used in almost any recipe that calls for ginger (with the possible exception of the crystallized form.) I mostly use this as a condiment that I put out for guest when I serve spicy foods. A nibble goes a long way towards countering the spiciness.
I also use these as a base for some soups and stews that call for ginger in recipes. And, of course, these are essential in stir fries and as a condiment for sushi.
If you use ginger often this is a convenient way to purchase it. There are no refrigeration instructions for storing once you open the jar, but I refrigerate mine anyway. It should be good for a month after opening, which is how long a jar lasts me and the last of the contents are always as fresh and potent as when I first open it.
