    • Hi Mark Carter - Opies is the brand name. Opies do a range of young fresh stem ginger preserved in sugar syrup. You should be able to find a similar product in the supermarkets in Spain. However, don't confuse root ginger with stem ginger. Root ginger tastes different and is the root of the ginger plant which is usually dried slightly and ground up or grated before being mixed with other ingredients in a recipe.
