What could I do with all this ginger? πŸ˜‚

Ok, my son is a sweetheart and he loves to buy me things. This time when he went out to the store with his case manager, he bought me ginger. Like 5 whole pieces. :flushed: I have like a huge ziplock bag full of sliced and whole ginger. I do use it for tea and spells. But what else could I use it for?? :joy: Please help!! :pray:

Ginger is great to cook with! If you dry it out and grind it up, you can make ginger powder to use for seasoning and witchcraft :pentagram: Then it won’t go to waste because you can store it longer as a powder.

Candied ginger is mmmmmm :drooling_face: you could just chunk it and dry it too, as well as grind. The dried chunks would be good for teas and cooking.

You can make hot tea with it. Cut just a few if it and boil it in water, add milk; sorry I don’t know the measures, butter, a little of sugar of your liking and what voila, hot ginger Puerto Rican tea.

You’re right! It’s also good for colds and any other tummy problems. Ginger ale is used for the same reasons. I used to drink so much ginger ale when I was pregnant.
