Description: A semi-liquid mixture of ginger root and syrup. Packed in small fancy earthenware jars, but more generally in stout pine casks which absorb some of the syrup so that there may be a loss on net out turn. This is usually allowed for in the filling. Casks require care in the stowage, and should be well bedded on dunnage and well tommed off. On account of possible leakage, they should be stowed clear of other sensitive cargoes. and in bottom tiers where drainage can be run clear. Leakage from casks usually involves only the syrup, which is of far less value than the ginger itself, but if the ginger is not immersed it will deteriorate in quality.
