Ginger is wonderful to reduce inflammation and also has analgesic properties. Since it’s rich in potassium and manganese it also helps the heart and circulatory system. This is my go-to homemade drink of choice when my joints ache.

How to Grow Ginger

If you want to ensure you’re consuming quality ginger, you can grow your own at home. Soak a piece of ginger root in warm water overnight to prepare it for planting. Ginger is actually a rhizome, not a root, so it grows best when planted near the surface.

Since the roots of the ginger grow horizontally, you’ll want to use a shallow, yet wide plant pot filled with rich, well-drained potting soil. Place the piece of ginger rhizome that has been soaked overnight onto the soil. Be sure the eye bud is pointing up, then cover it with an inch or two of potting soil. Water it lightly.

Ginger is a shade-tolerant plant, so it does not require full sun. It’s also a cold-tolerant plant. It normally takes eight to ten months for ginger to mature.

  1. I love Ginger Ale and anything ginger. I experimented with fermenting it using Caldwell’s Vegetable Starter for the probiotics. It turned out excellent.

    I’ve been looking at Caribbean Ginger Beer recipes (like Root Beer) because I had the stuff when I was an exchange student in the West Indies back in the 90s. The bottled stuff is just syrupy which I want to avoid, and I can’t find a “diet version.” Would you have any ideas on how to do this?

    • thanks for this recipe! I hope it will help me to cope with a headache! I really love recipes and ideas like this one.

      Ginger is used for the prevention and treatment of various colds, because it stimulates expectoration, it fights pathogenic bacteria perfectly, has anti-inflammatory and soothing effect, and also strengthens the immune system.

      I don’t know if you realize but due to its ability to fight parasites, ginger is also used to kill worms within the body too.
