About Galangal rhizomes

Galangal grows from underground rhizomes (root stems). You can cut pieces of rhizomes as you need it in the kitchen, and the plant itself will happily keep growing. 

The Rhizomes are very hard and they’re not easy to cut. I generally use a serrated knife to saw my way through the root, or sometimes secateurs if I can see a rhizome from above the soil and know where to snip. This is not good for your secateurs though!

Galangal has a stronger taste than normal, common Ginger.
