Herb of the month title
ginger heading
Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
Part Used:  Rhizome

Effective Forms:  Capsules, Tea, Tincture
Ginger has been used medicinally for thousands of years and is a traditional ingredient in prescriptions to ensure absorption through the stomach to all parts of the body.  As a diffusive stimulant it starts at the capillaries and works its way back to the heart.  Thus, its application for poor circulation in peripheral areas * cold hands and feet have found a warm friend in Ginger.

Ginger is thought to have blood-thinning properties and the ability to lower blood cholesterol levels. 
Therefore, it may help in preventing heart attacks.  It is a blood stimulant and cleansing herb.  It is also used for respiratory problems such as colds, sore throats, bronchitis, congestion, headaches and pain.

Ginger is also known to help with nausea, kidney problems, heart problems, fever, vomiting, cramps and in herbal combinations to aid in the effectiveness of other herbs.

It is used for numerous ailments, including menstrual problems, inflammation, arthritis, high cholesterol, liver problems, gastrointestinal problems and motion sickness.  Recent research has shown there are two natural antibiotics in Ginger and that it has been found to inhibit the growth of bacteria.

Another recent study involved patients with rheumatoid arthritis who had tried numerous conventional drugs which provided only temporary or partial relief.  All of the patients reported significant improvement, pain relief, reduction in swelling and improved mobility from Ginger therapy.

Ginger is probably best known for its positive effect on the gastrointestinal system.  It has the ability to relieve dizziness and motion sickness without causing drowsiness.  It also eases morning sickness.

For severe menstrual cramps, try a tea of equal parts of Ginger, Blessed Thistle and Cramp Bark.

Dosage: Tea:  1/4-1/2 teaspoon per cup of boiling water, drink freely.

Herbal Uses Jan Title
Ginger Title
You've seen it in your local grocery store-that knotty, beige-colored root that looks somewhat like a cross between a turnip, a potato, and a carrot. But have you ever tried it, or even given it a second thought? The fact of the matter is, ginger root has been used for culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years, and it looks like this root plant is here to stay.

A Short History of Ginger

Although native to Southeast Asia, ginger root can be found sprouting all over the world. It can be found in the United States, India, China, and the tropics, to name but a few places where this root plant originates. As a spice, the use of ginger root dates back at least 4,400 years; as a medicinal herb, it "only" dates back to the past 2,000 years. Similar to other plants that have long been known for their medicinal and nutritional value, such as the high-protein weed stinging nettles, and the common dandelion, the use of ginger likely stretches far back into prehistory.

The plant's name, Ginger, has a variety of origins, from the Middle Earth (gingivere) as well as Sanskrit (srngaveram), which translates to 'horn root.' Although ginger was well known by the Romans, the root and spice all but disappeared after the fall of the Roman Empire, not returning to popularity until Marco Polo visited the Far East.

Uses of Ginger
It was discovered some 2,000 years ago that ginger root contained several medicinal purposes and health benefits, some of which are still being practiced to this day. Often used as a means to treat digestive  problems, relieve heartburn, or even alleviate symptoms of the common cold, ginger has many versatile uses.

New Year 2017
Ginger as a Digestive Aid
Ginger has often been made (or used) as a digestive aid. It can either be taken in the form of tea or a supplement pill. The theory behind ginger as a digestive aid is that ginger root increases both saliva and stomach secretions. These actions both work hand-in-hand to sooth the digestive tract, providing no irritation whatsoever.

Ginger versus Nausea
One of the most well-known uses for ginger root is its capability to take the edge off nausea caused by an upset stomach, pregnancy, motion sickness, or chemotherapy treatments. Ginger works directly in the digestive system, going directly to the stomach to treat the problem rather than blocking messages to the brain like other anti-nausea medications.

Ginger as an Immune Booster
Ginger is a natural immune booster and is considered to be a *hot spice**meaning that, when ingested, it quickly has a warming effect on the human body. Ever heard that old saying *you have to sweat it out?* Well, this is where that saying comes from. Consuming ginger causes the body to sweat. The sweat glands produce a compound which, in turn, protects the skin from infection. Ginger also induces healthy sweating, which is extremely helpful once you are inflicted with a cold or the flu!

Ginger as an Anti-Inflammatory Agent
Ginger has also been found to relieve arthritis-related joint pain. Ginger contains anti-inflammatory agents, which help reduce swelling around inflamed joints. Many people with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis seem to greatly benefit from consuming ginger.

Ginger as a Spice
There are so many health benefits that come from ginger that it is easy to forget that it*s also a spice used for cooking! Ginger can be used to add a spicy flavor to a dish or can be grated and brewed into tea. (As a historical side note, Queen Elizabeth I is credited for creating the gingerbread man, a popular Christmas treat.)

There are many uses for ginger, both as a cooking agent and a digestive agent. Not only does it benefit your health and your body, but it tastes good, too.

Recipe Corner decJan. title
Asian Soup title
Ingredients, servings: 4
  • 4 cups homemade chicken stock (canned low-sodium chicken broth would work too)
  • 4 slices fresh ginger root
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (any type, but I used mild white mushrooms which seem more soothing for the tummy)
  • 1 cup spinach leaves (sliced into thin ribbons)
  • 1 green onions (very thinly sliced)

In medium saucepan, bring chicken stock to a low simmer. Add ginger slices and let simmer at least 15 minutes or longer. (Taste to see if you have as much ginger flavor as you'd like.) If you'd like a clear soup, use a yogurt strainer or coffee filter to strain the ginger-infused chicken stock, then rinse pan and put strained stock back into pan. Add a small amount of water if the stock has reduced very much.

While ginger simmers in stock, wash and slice mushrooms and thinly slice spinach leaves. Clean green onion and slice into very thin slices. Bring infused stock back to a low simmer, then add mushrooms and simmer 1 minute. Add sliced spinach and simmer one minute more. Turn off heat and add green onions, then serve soup hot, with chopsticks to eat the veggies after you drink the broth.

Asian Soup Bowl
Pumpkin spice cookie title
ginger fried rice

  •  5 cups leftover cooked basmati rice (from 2 cups of raw rice)
  •  3 Tbsp canola, peanut oil, or other high smoke-point oil
  •  3 tablespoons finely minced fresh peeled ginger
  •  5 green onions (both the white parts and the greens, separated), thinly sliced
  •  1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  •  3/4 cup diced (1/4 inch cubes) fresh pineapple
  •  1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  1. Place raw rice in a large bowl and rinse with cold water, changing the water until it runs clear.
  2. Drain the rice and place in a thick-bottomed saucepan (3 to 4 quart). Check the rice package instructions and add the amount of water called for for 2 cups of raw rice. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to low.
  3. Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, whatever is indicated on the package.
  4. Remove from heat and let stand covered for 10 minutes. Spread out rice in a rimmed baking sheet to cool off and air dry.
  5. Let dry out for a couple of hours and then proceed with the recipe, or put in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator overnight and proceed the next day.


1 Heat a large saute pan on medium high heat. Swirl in a tablespoon of oil to coat the pan. When the oil is shimmering hot, and starts to smoke, add the ginger and the white and pale greens parts of the green onions. Sprinkle with salt and stir fry until fragrant, about a minute.

2 Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the pan. When the oil is hot, add the cooked, leftover rice to the pan, breaking it up with your fingers as you sprinkle it into the pan. Stir-fry until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chopped pineapple, sliced green onion greens, and sesame oil. Add salt to taste and serve.

Many New Year customs that we take for granted actually date from ancient times. This year, ring out the old and ring in the new with a New Year tradition*or two!

Make Some Noise

  •  In ancient Thailand, guns were fired to frighten off demons.
  •  In China, firecrackers routed the forces of darkness.
  •  In the early American colonies, the sounds of pistol shots rang through the air.
  •  Today, Italians let their church bells peal, the Swiss beat drums, and the North Americans sound sirens and party horns to bid the old year farewell.
Eat Lucky Food

Many New Year's traditions surround food. Here are a few:

  • In the southern US, black-eyed peas and pork foretell good fortune. See our recipe for Good Luck Hoppin* John.
  • Eating any ring-shaped treat (such as a donut) symbolize *coming full circle* and leads to good fortune. In Dutch homes, fritters called olie bollen are served.
  • The Irish enjoy pastries called bannocks.
  • The tradition of eating 12 grapes at midnight comes from Spain.
  • In India and Pakistan, rice promises prosperity.
  • Apples dipped in honey are a Rosh Hashanah tradition.
  • In Swiss homes, dollops of whipped cream, symbolizing the richness of the year to come, are dropped on the floors (and allowed to remain there!)
Drink a Beverage

  • Although the pop of a champagne cork signals the arrival of the New Year around the world, some countries have their own traditions.
  • Wassail, the Gaelic term for *good health* is served in some parts of England.
  • Spiced *hot pint* is the Scottish version of Wassail. Traditionally, the Scots drank to each others* prosperity and also offered this warm drink to neighbors along with a small gift.
  • In Holland, toasts are made with hot, spiced wine.

Give a Gift

  • New Year's Day was once the time to swap presents.
  • Gifts of gilded nuts or coins marked the start of the new year in Rome.
  • Eggs, the symbol of fertility, were exchanged by the Persians.
  • Early Egyptians traded earthenware flasks.
  • In Scotland, coal, shortbread and silverware were traditionally exchanged for good luck.
  • Put Your Best Foot Forward
  • In Scotland, the custom of first-footing is an important part of the celebration of Hogmanay, or New Year's Eve Day.
  • This practice holds that the first foot to cross a threshold after midnight will predict the next year's fortune.
Although the tradition varies, those deemed especially fortunate as *first footers* are new brides, new mothers, those who are tall and dark (and handsome?) or anyone born on January 1.

Turn Over a New Leaf

  • The dawn of a new year is an opportune time to take stock of your life.
  • Jews who observe Rosh Hashanah make time for personal introspection and prayer, as well as visiting graves.
  • Christian churches hold 'watch-night' services, a custom that began in 1770 at Old St. Georges Methodist Church in Philadelphia.
  • The practice of making New Year's resolutions, said to have begun with the Babylonians as early as 2600 B.C., is another way to reflect on the past and plan ahead.
  • New Year's Folklore

Some customs and beliefs are simply passed down through the ages. Here are some of our favorite age-old sayings and proverbs.

  • On New Year's Eve, kiss the person you hope to keep kissing.
  • If New Year's Eve night wind blow south, It betokeneth warmth and growth.
  • For abundance in the new year, fill your pockets and cupboards today.
  • If the old year goes out like a lion, the new year will come in like a lamb.
  • Begin the new year square with every man.(i.e., pay your debts!) "Robert B. Thomas", founder of The Old Farmer's Almanac
  • So, whether we resolve to return borrowed farm equipment (as did the Babylonians) or drop a few pounds, we're tapping into an ancient and powerful longing for a fresh start!

Recipe:  Good Luck Hoppin' John


  • 4 strips bacon, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups cooked black-eyed peas, or 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen
  • 1/2 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried red-pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

  1. Partially cook bacon in a Dutch oven, add onion, and cook until bacon is crisp and onion is soft.
  2. Add black-eyed peas, rice, water, and pepper flakes.
  3. Cover and simmer over low heat until rice is done, about 20 to 25 minutes. Toss with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Happy 2016 everyone! Its hard to believe that 2015 is over - frankly, I couldn’t wait until it was over.  There was difficulty, elation, fun and a lot of growth this last year.  There was, as most of you know, a health scare that could have made a huge impact on my life - but everything turned out for the best!  Because of the positive outcome of that situation, I have been going ahead with some fabulous plans for the future!  I can’t tell you how excited I am to continue my business into the 26th year; its been the best of all possible worlds, and I truly love what I do!
