Ginger is in season from September to October, but this time of year, which is summer, is also a delicious time.
As a spice, it is consumed all over the world and was originally used as a medicinal herb to suppress coughing and nausea.
Gingerol, which is the main component of ginger with a pungent taste (it changes to a component called shogaol when heated), has the effect of promoting blood circulation and warming the body, so it is effective for people who are beginning to catch a cold or who are sensitive to cold. It also has an antioxidant effect, so it is also connected to anti-aging and beauty.
In addition, it has a deodorant effect, removes the smell of fish and meat, and has an antibacterial effect that suppresses the growth of bacteria, so it is a food with various uses.
Plump and hard ones are said to be quality products.
If you have leftovers, grate them and store them in the freezer.
At NachuRa, we serve homemade ginger ale with plenty of ginger. How about preventing summer fatigue?
