Additional Information on Gan Jiang

The history of ginger dates back thousands of years, with its origins believed to be in Southeast Asia. It was widely traded along the ancient spice routes and eventually spread to other parts of the world. Ginger has been valued for its medicinal properties in various cultures throughout history. Ginger originated in tropical rainforests as a species and now is grown in different climates around the world. The world's biggest producers of ginger root are India, Nigeria, and China in that order! It has been used both for cooking and medicinally all over the world. 

To use ginger, you can incorporate it into your diet in various ways:
Fresh Ginger: You can peel and slice fresh ginger and add it to teas, soups, stir-fries, or smoothies.
Ground Ginger: Ground ginger can be used as a spice in cooking and baking. It adds flavor to dishes like curries, stews, and desserts.
Ginger Tea: Steep sliced fresh ginger in hot water to make ginger tea. You can add honey or lemon for flavor.

Ginger Root Can Be Enjoyed In The Summer?

While ginger is often associated with warming properties due to its ability to stimulate circulation and digestion, it can still be enjoyed in the summer to cool and refresh you, especially when consumed in certain forms.
One popular way to enjoy ginger in the summer is by making ginger-infused beverages like iced ginger tea or ginger lemonade. 

Iced Ginger Tea: Steep fresh ginger slices in hot water to make a strong ginger tea. Allow it to cool, then refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice with a squeeze of lemon or a drizzle of honey for sweetness.
Ginger Lemonade: Mix freshly squeezed lemon juice with water and add grated or minced ginger for flavor. Sweeten with honey or sugar syrup to taste. Serve over ice for a refreshing summer drink.
