The healing flavors of ginger root have long been used in winter months . . .
for Indian and Asian cooking (delicious in stir fry dishes and soups), but also a long known folk remedy for sore throats and the common cold.
Select a fresh plump ginger root in the produce section (it keeps in your fridge for weeks). Peel and slice, and add some zest to your next soup, stew or stir fry.
And here's a great hot tea tonic when January's got you down:
Steep some fresh peeled slices in a cup of boiling water; add orange peel and a tablespoon of honey. Delicious and good for what ails you . . .
Take a ginger break.
