The peppery and slightly sweet flavor of fresh ginger has long been a mainstay in the savory dishes of Asian and Indian cooking. Europeans and Americans most often use the dried, ground form of ginger, usually in baked goods. But ginger's value is not just in its sweet taste and pungent aroma, it has medicinal properties as well: It is effective in quelling nausea. Many people eat crystallized ginger when they're seasick or drink ginger ale to calm an upset stomach. In fact, ginger-based tonic drinks have been prepared since ancient times.
This extremely versatile root is also delicious when used to make tea. All you need is fresh ginger, boiling-hot water, light-brown sugar, and a lemon.
Makes about 4 cups
6 ounces fresh ginger
1/4 cup light-brown sugar, firmly packed
Juice of 1 lemon
1. Combine ginger, brown sugar, and 6 cups water in a medium saucepan.
2. Bring to a boil over high heat, and reduce to a gentle simmer.
3. Cook until reduced to 4 cups, 30 to 40 minutes.
4. Add lemon juice.
5. Strain, and serve piping hot.
