I love the smell of gingerbread cooking in the oven. Nothing beats the taste of a fresh ginger cookie.
Did you know that Ginger has other uses then just for baking?
The October issue of the Natural Herbal Living Magazine talks all about Ginger.
Prior to my marriage I had thought that Ginger was only used in baking... cookies, cakes or sweet breads. After my husband arrived into the States, I found out that it is very tasty in savory dishes. Most of our African recipe use ginger in some sort of capacity. If you would like to see my recipes, head over HERE.
|Examples of ginger we use...|
Ginger Syrup, Ginger Root, Dried Ginger,
Ginger Candy and Ginger powder
Along with what ginger can help with, there is some contraindications in taking it. You may need to contact your family doctor to see if you should continue with using it. I also am very pleased that there is a statement in the magazine that says nothing in the magazine should be considered as medical advice. I do think herbs have their place in treatment of medical condition but as a nurse I feel that your medical physician should be well aware of what you are taking.
I also very much enjoyed all the recipes that were included in this magazine that use ginger. My favorite one is the Ginger Tea and Yummy Chai Tea for kids The Chai Tea will be something that I will be trying to make soon, even though I am not a kid. I like that there are recipes suitable for children too.
I found this magazine easy to read and very informational, with wonderful pictures. This magazine comes out each month and is about a different herb. Next month is Rose. You can buy a subscription for one month, six months, monthly subscription or annually subscription. You can also buy a subscription for a herb box which includes ingredients to make some of the recipes and also the e-magazine. The magazine is available only online and in November will be available as a newstand App. I am definately leaning towards buying one of the herb boxes, to see if I would like it. Now how do you order you ask, just head over and subscribe.
