ginger

Grate or blend fresh, organic ginger root (if it’s organic, I don’t usually peel it), put 1 x tablespoon of root and it’s juice into the mesh of a glass teapot, cover with boiling water and leave to steep for five minutes.

Pour into cups and have as it is or add a little bit of honey and even lemon or lime juice to taste.

I usually grate up a large amount and put into ice cube trays to freeze. Then it’savailable whenever I need it!

So good for warming the blood, improving the circulation, reducing inflammation and soothing sore, aching joints. Brilliant for nausea (have without the honey or citrus for this).
