I’m a true devotee of ginger and garlic. Rarely am I without a supply of gnarly, pungent ginger roots and I seldom commit the culinary sin of running out of organic garlic bulbs.

Ginger and garlic are the dynamic duo of good health. Their medicinal properties have been recorded by diverse ancient cultures. Recent research studies praise them both as safe and effective natural remedies.

Due to its primary active component, gingerol, ginger reduces inflammation, soothes all kinds of tummy and gastrointestinal upsets and nausea (even morning sickness), helps prevent colorectal cancer, and boosts immunity.

Garlic is every bit ginger’s medicinal equal. As one of the world’s most commonly used herbs, garlic supports heart health by reducing cholesterol, stimulating circulation, and improving arterial blood flow. As an immune supporter, garlic has been used traditionally to combat all kinds of nasty infections.

Be Selective

If you’ve ever eaten anything made with fresh ginger root or garlic cloves, you know the dried, powdered versions can’t compare. Not only is the flavour superior, the medicinal properties are more effective when fresh.

When buying ginger and garlic, choose organic sources whenever possible to avoid the synthetic chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides that nonorganic growing methods routinely use.

These simply elegant ginger and garlic recipes promise to take you from ho-hum cook to homemade gourmet. You’ll experience their warming effect from the inside out.
