I got ginger capsules recently and take two or sometimes three a day.  

I find they really help me with digestion...i had taken antacids and nexium for awhile and i think these affected my digestive system.  The ginger helps me produce saliva and aids in producing digestive enzymes.  I feel like it is normalzing my digestion after the antacid use.  I like ginger!!  

It is probably very good for A's.

Ginger has an affinity for the spleen as well. It's also good to consume it fresh in a tea when at home and I use the capsules as well. Ginger freezes well and can be grated or pureed, put into a container and 'chip' away as needed.

I have a Chinese friend who takes a finger of Ginger, roughs it up a little with the handle of a knife so that the skin is broken and the flesh crushed a bit, the puts it in a simmering soup. This allows the juice and flavour to be extracted into the broth. The finger is removed when the soup is finished.

Oooh...good tips here.  I love ginger.  Good to know about freezing it, and also about using a finger in soup or broth.  It is a diamond for me and a staple in my diet.  I use it freshly grated, and I use it dried in tea bags.

If you are into meatloaf you could try your usual recipe adding 2Tbsp. powered Ginger and 4-5 Jalapeno peppers, chopped. Both are diamonds iin my swami and the taste contrast is very novel and attractive.

Ginger is great! I chop it up very finely and add it to my faux soy sauce to marinate all my meat I also use it in my homemade mayonnaise. Just put it in the blender with the other ingredients and it gives such a nice hot taste together with the wasabi!

Balletomane : I have never had success to make mayonnaise. Your recipe with the wasabi sounds yummy. We miss mayonnaise since the GTD. Would you mind giving me your recipe? Thanks.

Heidi Merritt (On the Diet column) recommended ginger juice.  I buy fresh ginger and juice it.  I keep a jar in my refrigerator all the time.  It is great added to any orange vegetable.  It is wonderful in many casseroles.  It is refreshing and sooooooo good for the stomach to drink a glass of water with 1/2 tsp of ginger juice.

Suzanne,

How long does the ginger last juiced and refrigerated like that? I do puree and freeze it but this sounds interesting. My spleen and tummy love ginger. Fred loved Ginger too; but they needed their legs to dance!

Love ginger!!!!!
The spice, ginger, and ginger root tea are diamonds for me! Yay!
I also drink a mix of water, lemon juice, honey and ginger. Delicious cold...even mixed with berry juices or my sun tea (iced) acai/green tea.
I use the spice in most baking.

I make my own ginger ale. I make a large pitcher of ginger tea and sweeten it with honey. I store this in the fridge, and mix it to taste with sparking mineral water. It make me feel good, and ginger tea has anti-viral properties as well.

Good tips on ginger, I usually add slices to tea.  Will try the grating method. I used to love Ginger bread as a kid.
Now I drink ginger root tea (good for the liver), and the taste is nice and warming.

I've been on a water kefir kick lately, and add sliced ginger root to the kefir in the first ferment, transfer the ginger to the second ferment, then eat the ginger after drinking the kefir.

I also cook with fresh ginger root, a lot. Usually, I'll julienne it, and add it to stir frys, though it's great in beans, and in soups.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

This is interesting.  Today is the first day that I've brought a small piece of ginger root to work in order to make ginger root tea.  It is a diamond for me.  And I need all the help I can get as far as digestion is concerned.  Go ginger!

I don't think I've ever had it go bad in the refrigerator.  I usually use it up in about a month and make more.
