Is there a particular season for ginger root?
I was grocery shopping... one place (a Walmart Neighborhood Market) did not have any ginger (they did about two months ago). The next place (Publix -- a large supermarket chain in the south east) had some, but most of it was moldy and disgusting (surprising because Publix tends to keep very high standards).
Just curious if there's a reason why I can't find any. I'm looking to experiment with homemade ginger ale - I had some in a restaurant, so I want to do some testing to come up with a similar recipe :D
