The Incredible, Edible Ginger Root Slices
If you're like most people, you probably think of ginger as nothing more than a spice. And while it's true that ginger is one of the most popular spices in the world, it's also so much more than that. Did you know, for example, that ginger was once the basis of the world economy? Or that dynasties have risen and fallen based solely on their control of the ginger trade? It's true! Today, we're going to take a closer look at this amazing ingredient and find out why it's been so treasured for centuries.
A Brief History of Ginger
Ginger is a flowering plant that originated in Southeast Asia. It has been used as both a spice and a medicine for thousands of years. In fact, some historians believe that it was first cultivated in China over 3,000 years ago. From there, it spread to India and the Middle East. By the 1st century AD, it had made its way to Rome and other parts of Europe.
For centuries, ginger was one of the most valuable spices in the world. In medieval Europe, for example, a pound of ginger was worth more than a sheep. Not surprisingly, given its value, control of the ginger trade was fiercely contested by rival empires. In fact, many wars were fought over this precious commodity.
The Many Uses of Ginger
Today, ginger is still prized for its distinctive flavor. It's used to add zest to everything from curries to cookies. But its uses go far beyond the culinary realm. Ginger is also commonly used as a natural remedy for nausea and motion sickness. Additionally, some people believe that it can help alleviate pain from arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
