Ginger Winter Warmer

Fresh ginger has a warm, spicy-sweet flavor that can chase away even the coldest winter chill. If you like a super-strong ginger flavor, you can use a little more, or, for a milder flavor, a little less. In addition to tasting great it can even help you feel better if you have a cold or an upset stomach.
