Local Ginger Root!

Local Ginger Tea

I was delighted to discover locally-grown ginger root from Autumn Harvest Farm at the Lebanon Farmers Market on Saturday. I purchased some and immediately went home to brew tea. It was delicious. (Slice thinly and drop in boiling water, reduce to simmer for 15-20 minutes.) Make a pot, you can reheat it. Add a little lemon and/or maple syrup or honey. I am now envisioning other possibilities . . Maple-Ginger Carrots, gingered stir fries, and maybe Vermont Tofu with Peanut-Ginger Sauce.

I have been monitoring my trash output this week as an EcoChallenge and was disturbed by my individual, non-recyclable, foil-lined Lemon-Ginger tea wrappers . . . such synchronicity to find a new source of ginger tea with no waste at all! (These ginger roots were small and fresh and required no peeling.)
