Good information, thanks. I tried making my own candied ginger a few years ago. The ginger was a bit tough, but the syrup that was left was wonderful for cooking.

Does anyone have a recipe for pickled ginger? My wife and I love it when we eat sushi. She wants to make her own and store it.

Mahalo for sharing my ginger article from
I think another article I wrote about a ginger grower down in your neck of the woods will be published in the Winter edition of Edible Hawaiian Islands soon. Watch out for it!

i don't much like ginger but my daughter showed me a good use for it. For some reason the other day I was feeling nauseated and my daughter ask if i had ever taken ginger for nausea. I of course said no and she produced a bottle from her purse and gave me one. I figured what the heck so i took it. 15 min. later i realized i felt fine. I have to assume it works. What say you!

I have used either fresh ginger or capsules after radiation therapy when I am feeling nausea. Sometimes I make ginger tea in advance of my treatments. It might not work for everyone. A friend who was very sick during her pregnancy was told by her MD that is was okay for her to use it to calm her stomach and it worked for her.
Also some researchers say that it can be used for sea sickness and air sickness.
