Ginger

I just take a slice of fresh ginger and eat it as it is. It's very refreshing and it helps digestion, lessens coughing (if I have it), it tastes good and it gives a long-lassting freshness in the mouth.

I'm thinking it's a little freaky though. I've tried to sell the idea to others but when they try they get a funny look on their faces and says like 'Umm, it's a little strong...' and then they spit it out.

My grandmother sucks on ginger when she's working around the house...I love how ginger tastes but I just can't handle it in such a concentration...I have however recently started liking organic sugar coated ginger...I don't eat it often but I know I would have hated it a few years ago...the chocolate covered stuff aint bad either...of course its surely not raw though

there's a company called ''gingerpeople'' i'm not sure if they use organic material, but their ''ginger'' candies have a great taste..

Does Ginger chewing also work as a breath freshner ? I like ginger and love the "wow" hot effect it gives to my juices. Just never chewed it by itself that's all.

 

I ask, as I've recently given up chewing gum after thinking about all those ingredients they put into it.

I do like hot foods, but I don't know how hot ginger is, I will have to examine it with my face

 

If you like hot foods you should have no problems with ginger.

 

I've tried it before when cooking but never as a snack. This is a great idea! Sure beats smelling like garlic!

Ginger is also good for nausea, morning sickness and motion sickness.

 

I like candied ginger (I brush off some of the sugar, because I really don't want much, but it makes the ginger easier to tolerate). I'm pretty sure it's not raw, though.

 

You could maybe grate raw ginger, and add fresh-squeezed lemon and some raw agave nectar, and 'steep' it in warm water (not hotter than around 118%) to make a raw 'tea.' Just a thought.

My most favorite drink in the world is from a cafe in Baltimore...its made up of raw beets, granny smith apples and ginger...not sure what the ratio is though so I can't give out a true recipe...all I know is that its wonderful
