When I lived in Scotland I discovered a Fizzy Juice ( The Scottish call pop/soda 'Fizzy Juice') called Ginger Beer. One day I was so, so nauseated and I remembered reading on the web about how great Ginger is for nausea so I bought a bottle of Ginger Beer. It had that strong, sharp bite that is common to ginger. It worked! In less than 40 minutes the nausea was gone! Prior to that nothing has ever worked for me. I always kept several bottles of Ginger Beer in the house.
When I moved back to the States I tried several different Ginger teas that did not taste like I had ginger in it at all. I tried STASH: Expensive, I can taste the ginger and it works like a charm every time so I paid the price: $4.69 for a box of 20 (I think) bags.
But now for some reason my store stopped carrying this product. Soooo, I thought to myself: 'Why not make your own Ginger Tea from fresh Ginger Root'?
2 T. grated ginger root
2 c. water
Boil the water in a small saucepan and stir in the ginger root.
Drink straight or add lemon and/or your favorite sweetener to taste. Ginger tea with honey is a soothing drink when you have a cold or the flu.
|Peel & chop the ginger root|
|Toss the small bits of peeled ginger root into your veggie chopper|
|I put my ground up ginger root with the juice into a tea ball|
|put the tea ball into my kettle, let it come to a boil the turn the gas off and let it steep for 10 minutes|
|I wrapped the he remainder of the ground ginger root in aluminum foil, enough for 2 cups and put the packets into a zip lock freezer bag and freeze until your're ready for another cup.|
