Most people will agree that the benefits of ginger root are best recieved from the root form vs a powder. Fresh Organic Ginger root is required to make a beneficial Ginger Tea.
Powdered Herbs tend to lack the nutrients that make the fresh herb effective for various medicinal reasons.
When you are shopping for ginger root, look for firm, full roots. If there is any sign of loss of water, or shrinking, look for another root.
How to Prepare Ginger Root
Fresh Ginger Root can be used in any recipe calling for powdered ginger. Make sure you peel the root prior to using it. Slice it very thin for best results.
Trick for Storage. Ginger Root can be peeled and frozen for later use. Once frozen if you need some ginger for a recipe or cup of Spicy Ginger Tea, simply grate the frozen peeled root with a grater and when done, pop it back in the freezer in a sealed container or bag.
