10 Incredible Uses For Fresh Ginger | Sustainable and Renewable Living Systems | Scoop.it

While making some recipes that included minced ginger this past week, I started thinking about this strange-looking rhizome (kind of looks like a foot…no?) and what other things it’s good for, besides making food taste so good!

I knew a LITTLE bit about the health benefits of ginger from listening to people I know and respect tout its’ ability to help withstomach discomfort and in treating cold and flu symptoms. But I personally have only used it infood…which is a wonderful way to use it!  It just gives dishes a fresh kick of flavor that I love!

But if you’re only using it in cooking…you’re missing out on a whole lot of great natural remedies that people in Asia have been using for thousands of years!
