The Mystery Vegetable is…

Ginger!

This spicy and fragrant root is known for it’s help with digestion and gastrointestinal distress. It has also been known to work as an anti-inflammatory! Ginger is a little spicy and is frequently found in Asian food as it is typically grown in East Asia. Ginger is great in stir fries, as a pickle, candied, in soups, and in sauces. I store my ginger root in the freezer wrapped in plastic wrap. When I need a little bit, I cut off the brown skin and grate it (while frozen) easily into whatever I am making.

  1. Hi, thanks for following my blog. We also have recipes over at splendidrecipes.wordpress.com.

    This post on ginger is great. I buy fresh ginger and make a tea with it every night. I grate some ginger, add about 6 cloves (good for the lining of your intestine) and I either grate in lemon or orange zest.

    I have never frozen ginger before. But I do freeze lemon & orange peels for later use, like lemon zest for cheesecakes. Saves a trip to the store for just 1 tsp. of lemon zest.

    Check out this post of mine: http://eatandbehealthyblog.wordpress.com/2013/10/01/benefits-of-ginger/.

    Thanks again and I look forward to more from Sweet P’s Kitchen.

    Regards,
    Randy
