My Herbs and Spices Chamber is a new project on Noise.Cash. So far I have shared information about curry, alfalfa sprouts, and basil.

Please be advised that I am not a professional chef, professional food blogger or any kind of expert. I just enjoy eating and experimenting with different herbs and spices because they can make an incredible difference in the taste of foods that I have been eating all of my life.

Another wonderful benefit of herbs and spices is that they have healing properties. is a website that publishes reliable healthcare information. This article lists “25 Healing Herbs You Can Use Every Day”.

I confess that many of these medicinal plants I know nothing about. However, there are a few on the list I have tried. One of them is GINGER.

I love ginger! When you read about its health benefits, I can speak from personal experience, it's true! You can make a tea with ginger or you can use it to season your food, including desserts. Either way it's good!

The Chinese and the Indians use ginger in many of their recipes. “Ginger first appeared in the southern parts of the ancient China. From there, it spread to India, Maluku Islands (so-called Spice Islands), rest of the Asia and West Africa. Europe saw ginger for the first time in the 1st century when the ancient Romans traded with the India.” (Quote Source).

You can use ginger, fresh or in powder form. You can buy the ginger root, cut it up, and freeze until you are ready to use. One of my favorite dinner recipes is ginger chicken.
