My previous article about this spice was titled "Ginger is a Healing and Flavorful Spice". This is an article with some additional information so I titled it "More Ginger Love". This content was also shared on Noise.Cash.
GINGER evokes wonderful childhood memories for me. Memory 1: The gingerbread man. He only ever came around on Christmas. Memory 2: Ginger snaps. Cookies that I could buy for 10 cents a box! A crispy cookie that had a strange exotic flavor. When I became an adult, I started using ginger in my cooking for the 3 Ds: desserts, dinners and drinks. Food historians say that ginger was used in ancient China and in ancient Rome.  For use in cooking, ginger can peeled and grated or chopped, sliced or diced; ground into powder; crystallized; and pickled. (I love pickled ginger!)
By the way, you can also make a gingerbread house! 😊 It's a fun thing to do with kids.  If you don't celebrate Christmas, decorate it for a fun holiday that you do celebrate.
