10 Health Benfits of Ginger

Ginger & Herb Rice

Cook basmati rice. When you take the lid off the pan, quickly stir in finely chopped garlic, ginger, green chillies and fresh cilantro leaves—the burst of flavor and fragrance will drive your senses crazy with desire!

Ginger In Your Juice

‘Grate’ idea: grate some ginger root and put it in your juicer, along with carrots and apples and a little lemon juice. Totally yummy, and of course, so good for you!

Gingery Dessert

Even a smidgen of grated ginger on your vanilla pana cotta or strawberry sorbet can wake up the flavor!

Ginger Balances  Your Doshas

If your Ayurvedic dosha is Vata (airy, restless) or Kapha (heavy, sluggish), ginger can be to your ailments what a hero is to the baddies. But if you are a naturally fiery Pitta type of person, go easy on the ginger. To understand your unique dosha personality, see a good ayurvedic physician.

My great Aunty Bessie always drank ginger wine every night before bed time and she always said it was the key to a long life...She was 101 when she passed away. Nana My grandmother and Auntie Bessie's sister always told us eating preserved ginger was a health enhancer and was very good for you. So every Christmas Nana got chocolate coated preserved ginger and plain preserved ginger and she would eat a few pieces every day. She didn't live as long as her sister but a car accident was reason for that. But try as I might, I have never been able to have the same love affair with preserved ginger don't mind a drop of ginger wine when I can afford it.
Fig jam made with ginger is very nice has a sweet kick but figs are hard to come by. I will endeavour to try some of the many other uses listed because they sound useful and noteworthy.
