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. 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?? Please help!!
You could cook with it I’m trying to think & I haven’t finished my first coffee so I will have to get back to you
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 Then it won’t go to waste because you can store it longer as a powder.

Candied ginger is what we do when we have a lot to use up.
Here ya go, my dear!
Candied ginger is mmmmmm you could just chunk it and dry it too, as well as grind. The dried chunks would be good for teas and cooking.
Oh, thank you everyone for the helpful responses!! I really appreciate it
I use ginger root in herbal medicine. It’s wonderful to have on hand. I slice mine and dry it.

It’s supposed to be very good for nausea.
I have heard that & remember my grandmother giving me natural ginger ale when I was sick.
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.
I have a 8oz bag of dried ginger. I use that for tea or jar spells. The fresh, I’m going to try and make candied ginger. I’m only going to make a little because I’m the only one in the house who likes ginger.
@Amethyst you’re right! I just remembered that ginger is the main ingredient in the preggy pops that Justin used to buy me for morning sickness with our son
I love ginger tea!! I always make it this way!!
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.
