Ginger is a wonderful root with so many incredible health and wellness properties. It is easy to store and has a great shelf life much like a potato. There are several forms of ginger: Fresh & raw, powdered, liquid, and dried or candied. With the fresh raw you can chop or grate it and add it to your favorite meals. I love it best in my fresh juices and as a tea. It can also be used in liquid, powdered, dried or candied form.
Personally, I love the fresh zing and bite of fresh & raw ginger. When I eat California rolls (veggie sushi) I LOVE the pickled ginger! It is such a palate cleanser.

Ginger is not only an amazing spice full of healing flavors, but also a healing compound relieving inflammation and pain.
