Ginger Root, Good In So Many Ways

Ginger root is a natural spice and is known world wide for its smell and pungent taste. Ginger has been used by Chinese herbalists for more than 2,500 years as flavouring in food and also as a medecine.

Ginger originates in Asia, and is grown in India, Southeast Asia & West Africa & the Caribbean. It’s popular in many dishes as it adds great flavoring and aroma. I personally love ginger. I drink ginger tea to help with digestion, and when I have a cold. I enjoy making the tea because while it’s brewing it makes my house smell really good!

Here are more benefits of ginger.

Ginger Tea

Here’s how to make the ginger tea. Go to the grocery store and buy a fresh plump ginger, it’s really inexpensive. Slice about 15 pieces and lightly pound it. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, add the ginger & simmer for 15 to 20 minutes uncovered. When it’s done remove from burner and with a sieve pour the tea in a cup. If you have a cold add a spoonful of honey and enjoy!
