It’s just dried ginger bits. I love ginger. There isn’t anything in the world that wouldn’t taste good with some ginger in it. I dare any of you to name a food that wouldn’t be good with ginger.
Moving on… I love the smell of this. I usually make ginger tea by grating fresh ginger and pouring boiling water over it, but I recognize the convenience of a dried ginger. I’m glad I got this shipment before Thanksgiving because I was planning on making a stomach easing after dinner drink with ginger, mint and lemon grass. Or maybe minus the mint since some people don’t like mint (how can you not like mint?). But first, I want to try the ginger on its own.
I gotta say. I’m a little sad. I might have put in too much ginger, but the package doesn’t offer any suggestions. It’s nice and spicy which is great, but it’s also bitter and medicinal. I don’t think I can drink this without honey.
Okay, I just watered it down a bit and now it tastes better. I used too much ginger. I’ll know better for next time. This will probably be better in a blend. It’s super convenient for tummy problems, but I’ll stick to fresh ginger when I can.
