Indian GingerOk not quite everything is better with ginger, but it can sure bring an interesting taste fresh, candied, or dried to many dishes. I've been using it in all three forms for a long time now... I found the below article pretty interesting....

 

Ginger - a spice for all seasons

I fell in love with gingerbread years before I ever tasted it. The gingerbread that I was so fond of as a child was the story of the little gingerbread boy who ran out of the oven so fast that he managed to elude an old woman and man, a cow, a horse, a group of threshers and a host of others, only to be eaten up by a sly fox. The ending always made me sad, but it was obvious even to my young mind that if I could catch and eat a gingerbread boy, he would be delicious.

Ginger is also a favourite spice/ingredient of mine as well. Tip: Easy way to peel ginger, take a teaspoon/coffee spoon, turn it bowl side up in your right hand, take the ginger tuber in your left hand, now quickly scrape the spoon bowl down the ginger tuber, viola peeled ginger with no waste! Easy-peasy!
