    I like ginger, but I don't use it much other then in some Asian recipes.

    Good ideas?

    Pumpkin soup can use a bit of ginger for some extra heat...

    Ginger Chicken. It’s awesome:

    My wife also makes me a Pear-Ginger tea when I have a cold. One pear cut into a few slices boiled for 5 minutes or so with a few slices of cut fresh ginger. Strain into a cup or mug. Add some honey. Ahhh....

    I do multi colored carrots sautéed with garlic, butter, and ginger.

    Goes great with a petite filet mignon and a twice baked potato.

    It goes great with fish. I really like using pickled ginger with salmon. I also put dried ginger in my coffee. I slice up raw ginger and bring it to gigs. I throw a slice in my mouth before doing the songs that I sing. It helps to numb and distract from my ongoing throat problem. Ginger is awesome.

    I love spicy ginger beer. It's a great digestif, too- who would've expected something spicy to be a good remedy for heartburn?

    Coupla times a year I do a pan of potatoes, onions & eggs Asian style, a variation on my Granmother's recipe.

    I start with boiled potatoes, cut up. Fry 'em with butter & oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, then add slivered ginger and sliced onions and sauté til the onions are clear. Add minced garlic to taste, break a few eggs over and toss until the eggs are done, then finish with a generous splash of soya sauce and a few drops of toasted sesame oil. I generally add a few dashes of sriracha or Louisiana sauce at the table. Good stuff.

    It's not really "cooking", but ginger is my favorite flavor to add to home-brewed kombucha.

    A couple of cubic inches of chopped up ginger, three big chopped onions and a chopped up chilli, fried and then pureed/blended makes a great curry sauce base.

    Mrs Deeve grates ginger root into her marinade for chicken and beef.
    Leftovers? Not likely. ;)

    Peace - Deeve

    My infamous molasses cookies. Kind of like ginger snaps, but way better.

    Pickled ginger is a must for sushi, but I just buy it in a jar.

    Ginger Tea

    1. Place 2 tablespoons grated ginger into a 2-cup glass measuring cup.
    2. Fill to the 1-1/2 cup line with boiling water.
    3. Swirl it for about 10 minutes and strain
    4. Add honey or sugar
    It's very tangy and it's great if you have cold.
