Does anyone know of or use ginger or ginger products. I have seen Reeds Ginger Ale and Ginger type candies but don't know if they are safe for PA/TNA. Hope someone can help. Thank You.

I contacted McCormick Canada to check on their herbs and spices, and received a very prompt reply, stating that they always follow the safe manufacturing process and label if there is an allergen present, or if there is a possibility of an allergen being present. I was impressed with both their prompt reply and their policy. I'm not sure if McCormick also manufactures in the United States. Here is a recipe for Ginger Krinkles - a new recipe to me and very tasty [img][/img]
Ginger Krinkles
2/3 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, large
4 tbsp. molasses
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Extra 1/4 cup white sugar for rolling the cookies
Mix oil and sugar. Add egg, beat well. Stir in molasses and dry ingredients. Roll into balls and then roll in the extra sugar. Place on ungreased baking sheets at 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes
(shorter time for chewier cookies)
Makes about 36 cookies.

Wow, those cookies sound great! I'll have to pick up some molasses and make some.

Yes, McCormick's is in the USA, too. In fact, their plant is not too far from me. Love to drive by--always smells like cinnamon.
I trust McCormick's spices but, just as a matter of personal preference, avoid the packaged mixed spices (e.g., Taco Seasoning, Chili Seasoning, etc.). I use the individual McCormick spices to make my own seasonings.
In particular to ginger as a spice, I have always used McCormick's. I also buy fresh ginger and keep it peeled in the freezer. I grate it as needed. As to ginger ale, I like the taste of Seagram's best followed by Canada Dry. I avoid off/store brands as they are much too sweet for my taste.
Edited to add: I've never seen ginger candy so can't comment on it.
