One of the best things I’ve learned to make from scratch is ginger tea. We tend to drink a lot of it from fall to spring when the weather gets all wonky and cold or when we’re feeling under the weather. We usually drink this tea about three times a week. It helps keep our immune systems running more efficiently.
I take about a 2″ knob of fresh ginger (well ok, its more like 4″) and slice it very thin then simmer it in about 3c-4c water for at least 30 mins or longer. The longer you simmer, the more concentrated & powerful it becomes. Oh – spicy too. At this point, if you’re
a masochist brave enough to drink it straight up – more power to you. Though I love it super spicy, I’ll admit that even *I* need to add honey to help tone it down. To be even more crazy, I’ll add a wedge of citrus – take your pick: lemon, lime or orange. I know – bonkers huh?
